The low level of salaries provoked a shortage of personnel in the Arkhangelsk Regional Rescue Service, the press service of the regional assembly reports.
According to the department, the staffing of the Arkhangelsk Regional Rescue Service is 85 percent.
“The employee turnover and the outflow of young specialists are directly affected by the salary factor […] the level of remuneration of regional rescuers today is significantly lower than that of federal colleagues operating in the Arkhangelsk region. For example, the salary of employees of regional rescue units without length of service is less than 25 thousand rubles.– said the press service.
At the session, the deputies approved a resolution in which they recommended the regional government to ensure the growth rate of the average monthly salary of regional rescuers is not lower than those provided for by the action plan developed to increase the level of remuneration of regional firefighters.
