Prison union protests over pay and staffing

Romania Romania
On 13 August the SNLP prison workers' union organised a protest in front of the national prison service over the failure of the government to pay eight months of wage arrears and respond to other demands including: improving staffing levels by hiring 1,000 more people; compensation for overtime with time off from work or extra salary pay; and imposing sanctions on officials who do not abide by the law on staffing. The government doesn't respect the collective agreement or the process of social dialogue. Out of a list of 75 issues raised by the unions only five have been partially dealt with over the last 6 months. Depending on the government’s reaction, the union will continue the protest actions for an undetermined period of time. All prison workers will be wearing black ribbons around their arms to symbolise the loss of professional dignity.
