Salaries: Goverment sets Portuguese PM’s salary as ceiling for public manager pay

The Portuguese government, implementing a EU-IMF bailout programme, approved a pay ceiling for public managers Thursday, 9 February, limiting the sum to the salary paid to the prime minister.

Secretary of State for Public Administration Hélder Rosalino said the measure would take effect on 1 March, adding that it would save the state some €2m through the conclusion of the three-year bailout at the end of 2013.

He said administrators at bank CGD, airline TAP, television RTP, defence industries Empordef, and the CTT postal services would be excluded from the limit.
