Unions mobilise in ministries of justice

Italy Spain

The FSC-CCOO, FeSP-UGT and other unions in the ministry of justice in Spain have been protesting to demand negotiations over the impact of legislation on organisational efficiency in the justice sector. The unions coordinated a demonstration outside the ministry on 22 November to highlight their concerns that the law doesn’t guarantee rights in relation to mobility, promotion, remuneration and other labour issues and that it poses a risk to jobs and the quality of service. Above all the unions want to ensure that all these questions are the subject of negotiation. Meanwhile, in Italy the three public service federations – FP-CGIL, CISL-FP and UIL-PA – have also been mobilising workers in the ministry of justice with a demonstration on 23 November demanding action on precarious work and guarantees of permanent contracts for temporary workers.
