MIL OSI – Source: President of Russia – The Kremlin – English – Headline: Meeting with Chairman of Federation of Independent Trade Unions Mikhail Shmakov

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Mr Shmakov, as you may know, I have been discussing with the Government the matter of bringing the minimum
wage in line with the minimum subsistence level. You are
always raising this issue, and quite rightly too, as the law requires bringing these
into line. I would
like to begin our meeting with this issue and then move on to any other matters
you think we should discuss. Chairman of the Federation of Independent Trade
Unions Mikhail Shmakov Shmakov MikhailChairman of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia : Mr President, we have long been discussing this matter with the Government. The Government formulated a proposal, approved by you, to bring this
into effect by the start of 2019. This is a good step forward, but we believe
that it could come into effect instantaneously starting on January 1, 2018. We think
this could be done because the statistics show a positive economic development
trend and to have this go ahead all at once throughout the country would not
require a lot of money – we calculate that around 60 billion rubles would be
needed, with around 16–18 billion rubles to be provided from the federal
budget. We could achieve
the alignment right at the start of 2018 and all that would remain is to agree or adopt a law on automatic compensation depending on inflation. To be continued.
