“When announcing an increase in teachers’ remuneration by 30%, no less than PLN 1,500 gross, the general remuneration received by teachers (in all components) was taken into account, and not only the basic remuneration – one element of this remuneration. To fulfill this obligation, novice teachers salary increase by 33% was ensured. – explains the Ministry of National Education.
