Bulgaria - Prison officers staged a protest - January 31, 2018

Prison officers from the prisons and remand centres from across the country staged a protest on 29 January 2018 in demand of higher wages and better working conditions. They were backed by a statement from their colleagues from the Court Guard unit, and several interior ministry officers who were off duty and joined the protest. A spokesperson from the trade union of the prison staff explained that the demands of the workers remain unchanged: 20% pay rise and equalising the remunerations with the size of the remuneration of their colleagues from the interior ministry, the State Agency for National Security and ministry of defence. Other demands include improvement of the working conditions and appointment of more staff to fill in the vacancies and new positions to be added to the staff complement.
