They draw attention to the difference of up to 1,000 euros per month with the regional police
MADRID, 6 May. (EUROPA PRESS) -
Police and civil guards summoned by the Jusapol platform have mobilized this Saturday in Madrid to demand a dignified retirement and denounce a "double discrimination" that they suffer in the calculation of their pensions, asking the Government to listen to them and end the "lesser" treatment " that they receive in comparison with the autonomic agents.
From JUPOL and JUCIL, the two organizations integrated in Jusapol and which are the majority in both the National Police and the Civil Guard, have advocated for a regulatory change and have warned that they will be vigilant and that they will take their protest to the offices.
On the one hand, they demand this change because their pension is calculated for those who entered before 2011 based on the old regime of passive classes, so they will receive -they detail- a smaller amount than those who entered both bodies after that date and that they benefit from the general Social Security system.
And, on the other hand, because in both cases the amounts will be considerably lower than those received by the officials of the regional police and that can reach a difference of "up to a thousand euros per month".
The president of Jusapol, Miguel Gómez, has also transferred the discomfort of the "only police officers" in Spain to those who are not recognized as a risky profession. "We are tired that they violate our professional dignity, treating us like a minor police officer", he specified.
Gómez has indicated in a statement that when "salary discrimination" is allowed and not fixed, "the morale and spirit" of the agents is damaged, recalling that they have put solutions in the hands of the political parties: "It is a matter of political will, whether they want equality for us or not.
Jusapol has asked in the streets of the capital that "once and for all" the necessary mechanisms be initiated to resolve the wage differences that have existed "for more than 30 years" and with the "complicity", they denounce, from the different governments, hence they urge the current one "not to put himself in profile" and end that gap.
For his part, the general secretary of JUPOL, Aarón Rivero, pointed out that the regional police forces "get paid more, retire better" and their work is considered risky "for doing exactly the same job." And from JUCIL, his counterpart, Ernesto Vilariño, has shown his confidence that both the Administration and the parties take note of these demands and adopt measures to solve the "inequalities".
The protest has been backed by the CSIF union, which is demanding equal pay for all prison workers and recognition as agents of authority "given the increase in violent episodes in prisons."
And he explained that State Prison officials currently suffer a difference between 7,908 and 10,112 euros per year on average compared to those dependent on the Generalitat of Catalonia.
