Company leadership The KSCN met with the BSP parliamentary group. After the meeting, the union's president and socialist leader shared their consensus and differences in next year's budget.
"We share our assessment that this is a good budget, the best thing that Borisov has done." Here we go with the BSP, it can be a better budget, CISB President Plamen Dimitrov said.
CITUB believes that around 4A 0% reallocation is required through the GDP budget, thus addressing the BSP's overall vision, that more redistribution is needed to better fund social systems such as education and health.
As regards pension policy a CITUB considers the stabilization of total SSS budget revenue, which, according to the trade union, is at the expense of lowering the majority of declared earnings and paying more insurance. "We expect some 700-750 million more in the SSS next year, which unfortunately will not make it necessary to increase pensions." The planned 5.7% increase when they are received will be consumed by inflation and retired to a large extent will not be compensated for what is happening on the market and rising prices, "Plamen Dimitrov said.
He commented on this CITUB supports the provision of Christmas supplements for retirees, the initiative for these supplements was also the union, the CITUB leader recalled.
In turn, BSP leader Cornelia Ninova said he did not share the CITUB assessment that this is the best budget for the past 10 years. "There is an increase in spending in the budget, but the question is what is the effect of this growth," said Cornelia Ninova. According to Ninova, it is important to respond to how these costs will improve in health care, how to reduce inequalities.
