Wages of some civil servants, including judges, special service and national defense officers, correction officers, deputy ministers and MP aides, will be raised in October in line with the ruling of the Lithuanian Constitutional Court.

The parliament (Seimas) adopted the respective legislative amendments on Thursday. Opposition MPs did not take part in the voting.

In line with the amendments, bonuses for civil servants based on qualification classes would be increased to 20 percentage points, from 5 percentage points. However, the wages of the civil servants of those categories would still not reach the pre-crisis level since the basic wage, which totalled 490 litas back in 2008, would now be left at 450 litas.

Finance Minister Rimantas Šadžius earlier said that wages of some 60,000 people would be raised in October.

Some 34 million litas (EUR 9.85m) from the national budget will be spent on wage increases this year and extra 215 million litas will be needed next year.

The Lithuanian government introduced wide-ranging cuts in 2009 to rein in budget deficit in the wake of the economic downturn. In order to avoid hurting the most vulnerable segments of the population, high-earners took bigger cuts than low-earning civil servants. The Constitutional Court later ruled that the disproportional distribution was not entirely in line with the Constitution.
