Policemen and penitentiary staff on protest during the first JHA meeting in Bucharest

The trade unions representing the police officers and the staff working in the penitentiaries will protest the Interior and Justice Ministries’ HQs in early February during the Justice and Home Affairs meeting due in Bucharest. They argue the protest aims at promoting the employees’ rights.

Their demands refer to the salaries, the frozen pay rises, to not granting some severance pay for retirement for nine years, but also to the amendments operated on the state military pensions.

The trade unionists say the presence in Bucharest of the Interior and Justice ministries is a good time to warn on the inefficiency of the social dialogue but also on the defective way that the Government and competent ministries in Romania are treating the policemen’s wages and professional demands.

The JHA informal meeting will take place in Bucharest during February 6-8.

Romania has taken over the Presidency of the EU JHA Council as of January 1 for six months.
