AMMAN —AlGhad— Chairman of the Legislation and Opinion Bureau, Nofan Ajarmah, announced the government’s decision to adjust upper paygrade scales for the second class category, by ratifying a JOD225 raise, in order to establish a uniform paygrade system, and subsequently cut on costs.

According to Ajarmah’s statements on Facebook, the unification comes as part of the government’s efforts to level salaries via a standardised paygrade system.

Soon, contracted personnel will have to renew their contracts with the governments in accordance to the new pay scale.

In light of recent studies by the Ministry of Finance, Ajarmah confirmed, the decision should secure considerable excess to the Treasury.
