Wiesbaden (dpa/lhe) - Prime Minister Boris Rhein and Interior Minister Peter Beuth (both CDU) are presenting the state government's plans for civil servants' salaries in Hesse today (10 a.m.) in a digital press conference. The Hessian Administrative Court ruled at the end of last year that civil servants' salaries in Hesse are too low and violate the Basic Law. Accordingly, from 2013 to 2020 the civil servants were not sufficiently paid.
Unions and the opposition in the state parliament had been pushing for a speedy adjustment of civil servants' salaries in Hesse for months after the verdict. In his government statement in June in the state parliament in Wiesbaden, Prime Minister Rhein then announced a draft law for the gradual reorganization of civil servants' salaries in the state.
