Minister meets again with PSP and GNR structures with dissatisfied police officers

This is the third negotiating meeting between Margarida Blasco and the six Public Security Police unions and the five associations of the National Republican Guard

The Minister of Internal Administration returns today, May 23, to meet with the PSP unions and GNR associations about the mission supplement, after having presented a new proposal a week ago that displeased the police.

This is the third negotiating meeting between Margarida Blasco and the six unions of the Public Security Police and the five associations of the National Republican Guard, which have already announced to abandon negotiations and return to protests if the Government does not present a proposal that meets the expectations of police officers.

Last week, the Ministry of Internal Affairs proposed a new mission supplement of between 521 and 730 euros and the end of the current supplement for service and risk in the security forces, having presented a minimum guarantee clause worth 150 euros for positions where the percentage did not guarantee an increase in salary.

According to the new proposal, to which Lusa had access, the new mission supplement has as a reference the base salary of the national director of the PSP and general commander of the GNR and replaces the current supplement for service and risk in the security forces, which includes a fixed component of 100 euros and a variable component of 20% of the base salary.

With this new proposal, officers would receive a mission supplement of 14% of the base salary of the GNR commander and PSP national director, which is 5.216,23 euros, while the percentage for GNR sergeants and PSP chiefs is 12% and for guards and agents it is 10%.

The PSP unions and GNR associations do not accept this proposal, considering it "ridiculous" and that it creates "illegal and even unconstitutional situations", since the minimum guarantee of 150 euros increase will be lost in future promotions .

The platform of PSP unions and GNR associations proposes that the current 100 euros paid to police officers in the supplement for service and risk in the security forces be replaced by a fixed component of 712,96 euros, which would translate into an effective increase of around of 600 euros, in addition to maintaining the variable component of the supplement, which corresponds to 20% of the salary.

The president of the Police Professionals Union Association (ASPP/PSP), Paulo Santos, told Lusa that today they will listen to the minister, but warned that the police “do not accept any proposal”, demanding that the Government change the values ​​of the supplement and the application model.

Paulo Santos also stated that today's meeting will dictate whether the unions will “continue negotiations or go to fight”.
