EU sources -No pay rise for EU staff -November 20, 2013

The EU Member States have successfully blocked a 1.7% wage increase for EU staff. In line with general practice, the European Commission attempted to raise salaries in 2011 to adjust them to actual living costs in Brussels and civil servant salaries in Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Spain and the UK. However, member states objected to the pay hike on the grounds of austerity policies implemented in the member states and advocated for by the European institutions. The European Court of Justice has now ruled that the member states have the right to block the wage increase.
