All 55,000 Brussels civil servants are to benefit from the 2.4 per cent salary hike, backdated to July.
This is despite a year marked by a shambolic reaction to the migrant crisis and the stuttering economic performance of the eurozone.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker will get an extra £8,300 next year.
His basic salary will rise to £230,490.68 plus a residence allowance of £34,573.56 to cover the cost of accommodation in Brussels and annual expenses of £12,490.56.
Mr Juncker’s basic pay is 60 per cent higher than the £142,500 annual salary earned by David Cameron.
The commission president is among 10,000 Brussels officials who earn more than the Prime Minister.
