  • [01] CoS again rules that pay for military must be restored to July 2012 levels, reversing cuts

  • [01] CoS again rules that pay for military must be restored to July 2012 levels, reversing cuts

    The plenum of the Council of State, Greece's supreme administrative court, has again ruled that salary cuts imposed on those employed in the armed forces are unconstitutional and has ordered that their wages be restored to 2012 levels.

    In a ruling on Friday, the court found that a measure passed in response to the then court ruling in 2014 - which only partially restored salary and pensions for the military to their pre-crisis level - was also unconstitutional. The 2014 government, in response to a 2012 court ruling against salary cuts to the military, had legislated for a new wage scale, passed by ministerial decree, giving pay, benefits and pensions that were again significantly less than those paid out in 2012. Armed forces unions contested the new wage cuts in the courts, arguing that they were unconstitutional and contrary to the European Convention on Human Rights.

    The CoS plenum upheld their claim that the 2014 ministerial decision was unconstitutional with its ruling on Friday, finding that it did not fully comply with earlier court rulings in the same case and did not observe the constitutionally established principle of giving special wage treatment to the military.

    The ruling, however, only applies to the specific members of the military that had recourse to the CoS.
