Skopje, 4 July 2017 (MIA) - The government of Macedonia at a session on Tuesday reached a decision to introduce flexible working hours for civil servants, including shift work in several institutions, Minister of Information Society and Administration Damjan Mancevski said.
The decision enters into force as of September 1. The 8-hour work day will begin between 07:30h and 08:30h and will end between 15:30h and 16:30h.
According to Mancevski, the decision to change working hours in the administration comes after a series of consultations with the citizens and with representatives of NGOs and trade unions.
"This is one of the many measures taken by the government to provide better conditions for public servants," the Minister said adding the decision would be implemented starting Sept. 1 so as to allow the institutions, including ministries, bureaus, kindergartens, schools, etc, to adjust to the new measure.
Answering a journalist question, Minister Mancevski said all ministries were undergoing a functional analysis regarding the number of employees in the public administration to determine if there were a surplus or a lack of staff.
"I would like to replace the word reform with the word reorganization of public servants in order the citizens to get more efficient services," the Minister of Information Society and Administration noted. ba/17:45
