The aim is to guarantee higher salaries for teachers working in the regions of Italy where life is more expensive. Without, however, touching the national employment contract. How is this possible? Thanks to autonomy reform. This was explained by the Minister of Education, Giuseppe Valditara. “In terms of school autonomy, I believe that the national contract will not be touched. I have never heard that the Regions want to question it, even if it is to allow greater equity where the cost of living is much higher: this is the real challenge” .
Valditara, speaking on “Italia 2023: Persone, Lavoro, Impresa”, a dialogue platform promoted by PwC Italia and the Gedi group, adds: “We need to understand how to guarantee that the worker who encounters a higher cost of living in a given territory does not he actually has a lower salary than his other colleagues. The challenges of autonomy are different, don’t question the national contract or the programs”.
