Belgium - Police officers should earn more - August 31, 2016

Police unions have calculated that tens of thousands of police officers should actually earn more money, if their wages are compared to other civil servants in the same wage category. The unions calculated that police officers are entitled to 2,030 euros more each year. A representative of the police union explained that, when the police reform was carried out, the promise was made that wages would follow general salary scales for civil servants. However, this was not the case in 2014. Salary standards for public servants have gone beyond those for the police. The minister announced that negotiations with the police would certainly follow.
