The Ministries of Labour, Invalids and Social Affairs (MoLISA) and Industry and Trade (MoIT) met yesterday to assess the first results of the inspection into salary payment at the Electricity of Vietnam Group (EVN).
Despite operating at a loss, EVN still payed high salaries to their staff
In an interview with Dtinews yesterday afternoon, deputy minister of the MoLISA, Bui Minh Huan said that his inspection team had performed their task at 25 subsidiaries of EVN, including EVN’s head office, The National Power Transmission Corporation(NPT), as well as other corporations, from December 12, 2011 to January 14, 2012.
“The team’s initial report shows that, despite the fact that the company has been operating at a loss, EVN still payed high salaries to their staff,” he said.
According to a report by the State Audit Agency, the staff working at the holding company received the highest average salaries, amounting to VND13.7 million per month, while the electricity distribution divisions got an average VND7.9 million, and VND10.8 million for the power transmission units.
Huan also said that his ministry is in the process of urging the team to complete their report, whose findings will be publicly announced in detail as soon as possible.
EVN’s chairman, Dao Van Hung, was dismissed by the Prime Minister on February 1, for violations that caused serious losses to the group.
