Romania - Wage increase at Kaufland and Dacia - December 31, 2017

Kaufland, the country’s largest retailer, announced that it increases gross wages so that net amounts don’t drop. In addition to that, the retailer will increase the gross monthly minimum wage in the company to RON 2,800 (605 euro) for commercial workers, from 1 March 2018. The amount includes both food vouchers as well as Christmas and Easter gift vouchers. At the same time, management and the trade unions at automotive Dacia announced an increase of the gross wages by 20%, starting 1 January 2018, in order to avoid that the workers’ net salaries drop after the social contribution transfer to employees. Due to a decree, social contributions will be fully transferred from employers to employees from the beginning of 2018.
