National Guard Sergeants Association to Appeal to Constitutional Court – Current Affairs – SAPO.pt

“Once the negotiations are concluded, we have no other choice but the Constitutional Court and the protests,” Ricardo Rodriguez, president of the National Association of Guard Sergeants, told reporters, stressing that they would resume “as soon as possible.”

The ANSG is one of eight associations of the Republican National Guard and the Public Security Police unions that have not reached an agreement with the government today on increasing the risk allowance.

“What is at stake is the value attributed in November of last year to the judicial police, which clearly distinguished between members of the security forces and the judicial police,” Ricardo Rodriguez explained, stressing that all categories of judicial police ranged in value from 300 to 700 euros.

The group's chairman considered that there is “clearly a constitutional issue here,” stressing that “the principle of equality is being violated here” by not treating “the like on an equal footing.”

According to Ricardo Rodriguez, the 300 euro increase places a large part of the National Guard soldiers, even the sergeants, “under a police annex lower than a PJ security guard.”

He added that the agency opposes this “because there is a completely discriminatory treatment,” stressing that the minimum amount accepted by the censors is an increase of 400 euros.

The president of the Independent Union of Police Agents (SIAP), which did not sign the agreement, also considered the 300 euro increase “unworthy of a PSP agent because he is paid less than a PJ security guard,” said its president Carlos Torres.

“We did not reach an agreement with the government because SIAP maintained the same position, less than 400 euros, not even a single cent,” he stressed.

In turn, the president of the Professional Police Association (SPP), Paulo Macedo, stated that he could not “find a valid justification for the life of a police officer and for the risk of a police officer to be less than what is attributed to the PJ.”

Paulo Macedo also said the union “will continue to fight for the future award of the risk supplement.”

The National Police Union and the Independent Police Union League were among the other socialist police unions that did not sign the agreement with Interior Minister Margarida Blasco. In the National Republic government, in addition to the ANSG, the Independent Social-Professional Association of the Guard, the Independent National Guard League and the Guard Union League also did not sign.

The government today reached an agreement with three PSP unions and two GNR associations on the allocation of the risk supplement, which translates into a gradual increase of €300 until 2026.

In addition to an increase of 300 euros, and an increase in the fixed alternative to the fixed supplement from the current 100 euros to 400 euros, the signed agreement also provides for a review of the professional status, changes to the wage scale in 2025 and the valuation law, a review of the wage scales and a green cross in health.

This increase of 300 euros will be paid in three installments, 200 euros this year and the rest at the beginning of 2025 and 2026, with an increase of 50 euros each year, in addition to maintaining the variable component of 20% of the basic salary.

The risk and service premium in the security forces consists of a variable component of 20% of the basic salary and a fixed component that will increase from 100 euros to 400 euros.

The PSP unions that signed the agreement are the National Association of Police Officers (SNOP), the Association of Police Professionals (ASPP) and the National Association of Chief Professionals (SNCC), while the GNR associations are the Association of Guard Professionals (APG) and the National Association of Guard Officers (ANOG).
