AMMAN — Minister of Education Wajih Owais on Monday said the Cabinet on Sunday discussed the demands of grade-three public sector workers, including those in the ministry, to increase their cost of living allowance from JD115 to JD135.
The Council of Ministers agreed that it was important to examine the number of sector workers to assess the costs.
This would take two weeks after which the Cabinet will decide on this issue, he added.
The Cabinet’s legal committee on Saturday reviewed the bylaw for salaries at public universities, in the presence of Minister of Higher Education Wajih Owais, ahead of submitting it to the Council of Ministers.
The Cabinet has decided to extend 15 per cent of teachers’ basic salaries as a raise starting in 2013, increasing their total raise to 100 per cent of their basic salaries, Minister of Education and Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research Wajih Owais said Wednesday.
Education Minister Wajih Owais on Tuesday said that public school students across the Kingdom are still exempted from paying school “donations” (fees).
