Elements of the security forces hold vigil on October 21 in Belém – Sociedade

The structure that brings together unions and associations from the PSP, GNR, SEF, prison guards, the Maritime Police and ASAE decided this Friday to hold a vigil with the Presidency of the Republic on October 21.

The elements of the security forces and services intend with this vigil in Belém to appeal to the President of the Republic, Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa, to exercise his power of influence with the Government in the sense of changing the salaries, the national secretary of Permanent Coordinating Committee (CCP), César Nogueira.

The vigil was decided this Friday during a meeting, in Porto, of the CPP of Unions and Associations of Professionals of the Security Forces and Services.

César Nogueira advanced that the issue of salaries is transversal to all police forces, which therefore demand that the State Budget (OE) for 2023 includes funds to update the salaries of security forces and services.

“The issue of salaries is the main one and the one that affects all police officers”, he said, giving as an example the GNR, in which there has been no change in the salary scale since 2009, and the PSP, which has not seen salary increases since 2015.

The policemen admit more joint protest actions, and it has already been decided to hold a demonstration before the Assembly of the Republic, in Lisbon, during the discussion of the OE, if it does not contemplate salary increases for the security forces and services, said César Nogueira.

The CPP national secretary also said that these joint protests are independent of the initiatives that each structure will carry out individually, as is the case of the Association of Guard Professionals, the Union Association of Police Professionals and the prison guards union, which have actions marked.

The CCP includes the Association of Guard Professionals (APG/GNR), Union Association of Police Professionals (ASPP/PSP), Socio-Professional Association of the Maritime Police, Union for the Investigation and Inspection of the Foreigners and Borders Service, National Union of the Prison Guard Corps and the ASAE Employees Union Association.
