(TAP)- Sixty-five percent of retirees receive pensions lower than the guaranteed minimum industrial wage (379 dinars), said Secretary-General of the Tunisian General Labour Union (UGTT) Noureddine Tabboubi.
Tabboubi was reacting to claims the increase in retirement allowances sent national funds into deficit.
The SG Thursday said, on the sidelines of works of the social funds' union, there is need to increase as soon as possible the guaranteed minimum industrial wage. Considerable progress was made in negotiations, especially as the Prime Minister showed understanding.
Control structures also need to have their role activated for it is unacceptable to deduct social security contributions without making sure they are paid into social security coffers.
These illegal practices will directly impact the financial balance of social security funds. Overhaul must provide real and practical solutions, he further said.
