Spontaneous protest of Bucharest court clerks and record keepers

Ancillary staff with Bucharest courts of law launched an unplanned protest in front of the Palace of Justice yesterday, as the court clerks and keepers of court records are unhappy at a new salary law that eliminates the 50 per cent neuro-psychic stress bonus from their pay, Agerpres reports. Only judges and prosecutors are to benefit from such bonus henceforth. The Projust president, Stefania Teleman, accused Justice Minister Catalin Predoiu of failing to negotiate the salary bill with the unions, and keeping it hush instead.
‘We have met Mr. Predoiu a couple of times, but only for cordial discussions, he actually ignored us and lied to our faces,’ Teleman said, who added that the City Hall authorised a rally in front of the Justice Ministry building early next week, with court clerks nationwide being expected to participate in the protest.
Minister Predoiu called on protesters to halt their protest actions and resume work, saying he would again inform Government about the salary problems in the system, vowing to take no decision without consulting the unions. ‘Such pressures are baseless and won’t resolve the structural problems in the system,’ Predoiu said.
