On 15 September the Estonian trade union for Workers in State and Self-government Institutions (ROTAL) is organising a picket before the Estonian Government Buildings at 9.30- 10.30, followed by a march to the Estonian Parliament. ROTAL is protesting that the Government has reneged on deals to compensate border guards during the period 1990-1994. Also ROTAL states that the Government is making unrealistic demands on border guards, particularly at the under staffed Russian border. The issue is compounded by the Governments decision to pay high level staff up to 15 times the salary of entry level guards. Read the EPSU letter of protest to the Estonian government:
