Strong support for strikes in ministry of justice


The FSC-CCOO, FeSP-UGT and other trade unions in the ministry of justice have been maintaining their campaign of strike action with high levels of support for the strike that took place on 4 May and with further action set for 9-11 and 16-18 May. The main demands focus on the need to negotiate implementation of the law on organizational efficiency and to deliver salary improvements that recognise the functions workers perform and ensure the development of the professional careers. The ministry has so far rejected any salary increase for most staff – around 90% - despite agreeing to an increase specifically for lawyers, accounting for less than 10% of staff. According to the unions, the law on organisational efficiency, if not properly negotiation, could have a negative impact on jobs, mobility, career development and salaries for special functions. The unions are warning that all out action may follow if there is not response from the minister.
