Debate on the establishment of teachers : in Berlin, officials are permanently sick more often than employees

in Berlin, officials are much more common illness than their peers colleagues in the employee status. This disease statistics of the Senate administration for Finance documents. The sickness rate of the officials there is a big gap in certain age cohorts and by more than 100 percent. The country Director of the Berlin civil servants ' Association, Frank Becker, explains the difference to the daily mirror that "the economic pressure" on the employees is greater and you do not health returned, therefore, "completely" back to your workplace.

this may be How big is the difference, in the example of the 40 - to 50-Year-old show. In the case of the employee three percent of them between six weeks and half a year sick, in the case of the officials but 6.5 per cent. "After that, civil service teachers are more than twice as often as staff members", concluded Berlin's Finance Senator Matthias Kollatz (SPD) concludes. In a "rough calculation" need you, therefore, 3.5 percent more officials. If you follow this calculation, would Berlin have a high two-digit million amount to raise alone, the additional costs will be offset by the higher representation needs luckily teachers.

The duration of the disease from six weeks ago is not particularly relevant, because then the payment of full wages for collective ends employed, for civil servants but, as you an unlimited full continued payment of wages is safe. Berlin education Senator Sandra Scheeres (SPD) had in the context of the establishment of an official discussion of the SPD Education professionals know that the ill state of the officials "was slightly higher". This contradicts not only the duration of the medical data by Kollatz, but also of the statistics on the absolute Numbers of sick days that the daily mirror had recently published.

Scheeres has every reason to not hang the sick stand too high, because you want to return because of the shortage of Teachers on establishment. Kollatz provides the establishment of an official, the opponents of the arguments. Both points of view are to be found in an SPD internal paper, with which the two senators explain to the delegates at the recent Congress of their position and wanted to justify. Particularly sensitive to illness in the paper, the daily mirror, Kollatz’ designs for the high duration ratio of officials.

The urgency stems from the fact that the establishment of an official discussion is far from over. Although the delegates of the SPD party rally at the 30. March, an application for the alternative to return to the establishment rejected. You have not but voted for a motion that allows for the establishment of an official, when the teacher's deficiency is otherwise overcome: The education of a Senator was awarded the contract for an "open-ended" test.

After Scheeres, however, has tried for many years, in vain, to bring the teacher shortage is otherwise under control, it is expected that you will bring back the topic again soon on the agenda – at the latest when the summer only a fraction of the New recruits trained as a teacher. Because Scheeres assumes that you must also set 2019 and 2020, respectively, approximately 2500 teachers – and not much more trained teachers than in 2018, as she was only able to finish with 675 career seekers contracts. This in any case, you said at the party Congress, and in the same paper as Kollatz: The two senators delivered the amazed delegates in the same paper have very different views on the question.

That the establishment of an official discussion is quickly acute the fact that the dismissed state Secretary for Education, Mark Rackles (SPD) at the same time, the strongest house is the internal counterpart in the establishment question the way speaks. As his successor, Beate Stoffers (SPD) is thematically very close to the side of the Senator, it would give the Secretary of state level, no longer a headwind. In addition, the SPD-formation of city councils in the Establishment on the part of the school's Senator, as well as of the SPD parliamentary group, the Chairman Raed Saleh, and the education of a politician, Maja Lasic.

The Finance Minister is therefore not with the Argument of the high sick rate, suffice it to say, but it brings more points. So he set out in his paper that all of the savings that would result from the establishment due to the elimination of social security contributions – would be annually consumed a total of 250 million euros, and "complete" if the country would pay into a pension Fund. The will but necessary, since Berlin had already piled up now pension expense from 58 billion euros.

As the open flank of the establishment of proponents of the fact that around 6000 employees do not meet the conditions for establishment, the following applies: you are either too old or too sick, to gain the coveted Status, so it will come again for great justice discussions in teacher rooms. This point, in the case of measure – against the establishment set – coalition partners, as well as the WT is of great importance. Them the establishment of an official supporters try to take the Wind out of the sails by you for this 6000 Affected high supplements, to reduce the distance to the officials.

The Senator of Finance is, however, trying to beat the proponents of this Argument out of Hand, he writes in his paper that the establishment of a teacher was financially only "justifiable", if there is no further burden: "What is beyond in any case, the cost balance, with additional allowances for employees, teachers," writes Kollatz. The Senator refers to Saxony, the – pays-due to the recent return to the establishment – a Supplement of 170 euros to employees: "Such payments make the the establishment of of discussion a higher payment action for teachers," says Kollatz' negative message.
