Agreement of State and Church could free up 10,000 jobs in public sector, Tzanakopoulos says

The Greek state could potentially hire up to 10,000 civil servants as a result of the historic agreement between the Greek state and the Church, Minister of State and government spokesman Dimitris Tzanakopoulos revealed on Wednesday, in response to questions.

He explained that the clergy are currently considered civil servants, even though they are not, and are included in the civil service workforce. Following the agreement with the institutions before the conclusion of the Greek programme, which foresees one hiring for every departure in the public sector, the spokesman noted that the agreement with the Church gives the government the option to fill the vacancies created by hiring public-sector staff to cover the needs of the social state, primarily, such as doctors, teachers and nurses.
Additionally, Tzanakopoulos said that the clergy will henceforth be paid via a subsidy given by the state and that the Greek government anticipates that, by 2030, this cost will be covered by revenues from the Church property fund.
