About a hundred employees in the judicial administration and members of the Independent Trade Unions of State Administration and Judicial Service protested in front of the Government and the Ministry of Justice due to low salaries and non-payment of work allowances. The employees’ representatives demanded a 35% salary increase and expressed outrage at the Ministry of Justice’s attitude towards their demands.
“The protests will not stop there. Today we had a meeting with representatives of the Ministry of Finance with whom we did not reach an understanding. We demand a 78% increase in the minimum wage and the payment of a 35% salary supplement for judicial officers. In the part of the prison system, we are asking for an increase in wages, training and employment. The requirements are a real need for all employees considering the specificity of our work,” said the protesters.
