All public prosecution staff nationwide have gone on strike after Justice Minister Krenar Lloga did not invite their representatives to a meeting to discuss higher pay, Trade Union of Administration, Judiciary and Citizens’ Associations Secretary General Bojan Tripunoski told reporters Wednesday.
The demands are a salary increase of 78 percent and the return of salary supplements in the amount of 35 percent. The strike will take place in front of the buildings of all 28 public prosecutor’s offices in the country, their halls or meeting rooms, and as Tripunoski said, it will last until their demands are met. According to the legal regulations, the employees of the public prosecutor’s offices will only work on cases in which there is detention, search or urgent appeals.
“We will not allow any pressure on employees to perform work tasks, except for those that are urgent and critical. We are ready to withstand all the pressures,” said Secretary General Tripunoski in front of the PPO – Skopje.
