Union of justice operators denounces intimidation of striking employees

The Union of Justice Operators of Angola (SOJA) denounced that the striking employees are being intimidated by the employer, who refuses to put in writing the agreements reached so far, informed the union leadership.


According to SOJA's general secretary, Brito Teixeira, SOJA started the strike on Monday, while the union's management responded to an invitation made on Friday at around 3:00 pm by the management of the Superior Council of the Judiciary ( CSMJ).

"The meeting was running in a generally satisfactory way, it turns out that, after discussing the points in the list of demands, SOJA suggested that the employer reduce everything that was said in writing, with the purpose of drawing up an agreement for the employees to feel comforted by this agreement", said Brito Teixeira.

The secretary general of SOJA underlined that "the employer refuses to proceed in such a way, believing that Soja and the employees are authentic of what is said in words and not in writing".

"Soja has not very good experiences with the CSMJ, which is why it suggests, insists, that the council draw up an agreement and send it to Soja. While this measure does not happen, we will continue on strike", he observed.

The trade unionist denounced that on the same day, at around 6 pm, the council issued a circular "intimidating employees, threatening employees".

"It is a regrettable position on the part of the CSMJ, but even so, we are convinced that we are following the path that the law allows us to follow", he said.

The official reiterated that the strike is nationwide, that "the provinces joined en masse", hoping that "the council will rethink its position".

"We appeal to the court officials to be polite, to have respect for the institution and that better days will come", exhorted Brito Teixeira.

SOJA has been claiming for some years better working conditions, career promotions, approval of a new remuneration statute, lack of transport for diligences, subsidies and incentives at court level.
