Bulgaria -Police take to the street after retirement compensation is halved -November 08, 2015

Police officers took to the street after the government announced a set of surprise proposals, which would half their retirement compensation. The proposals, which would not apply to officers currently in service, would mean retirement compensations will be cut in half, and paid leave will be reduced from 30 to 20 days as of Wednesday 4 November. Police officers reacted with spontaneous demonstrations, which the prime minister has called illegal. After five consecutive days of protests, the interior ministry agreed to withdraw the proposals in order to discuss the cuts with trade union representatives.
