Judicial Employees Union reaches agreement with Ministry of Justice and puts an end to a year and a half of strikes

The Judicial Employees Union (SFJ) reached an agreement this Wednesday with the Ministry of Justice on improving remuneration, such as increasing the procedural recovery allowance.

Source from the Ministry’s press office headed by Rita Alarcão Júdice disclosed that there is an agreement with the Union of Judicial Employees (SFJ), with the Government raising the proposal to increase the procedural recovery subsidy (recovery of pending processes) from 10% of the salary paid in 11 months to 13.5% of the salary paid in 12 months, effective June 1st.

In statements to journalists, António Marçal, president of the SFJ, says that “there is a moment of pacification that allows us now to think about what is fundamental, which is the review of the statute with salary appreciation and also functional value†.

António Marçal also confirmed that what was agreed was “a substantial change to the procedural recovery supplement”, providing for an increase in the procedural recovery subsidy (recovery of pending processes) from 10% of the salary paid in 11 months to 13.5% of the salary paid in 12 months, with effect on June 1st.

Furthermore, “it covers situations of illness, accidents at work and is applied to workers who are on an experimental basis”, he highlighted, adding that “this will allow for a reinforcement of what is It’s the salary issue.”

“But more important than that, it unblocks the obstacle that persisted in starting to negotiate salary increases. There is now a period of pacification and it didn’t make sense for us to maintain the strikes”, highlighted the president from SFJ.

The signing of this agreement with the main union in the sector comes at a time when strikes carried out by judicial employees have lasted for around a year and a half and have affected the normal functioning of the courts.

The other union in the sector – the Union of Court Officers (SOJ) – will analyze the new proposal from the Ministry of Justice, which increases one percentage point to the previous proposal.

However, for the president of SOJ, Carlos Almeida, this increase still does not satisfy the union he presides over, believing that it will be possible to improve this latest proposal already accepted by the SFJ.
