Lawyers of the Administration of Justice begin an indefinite strike today

The work of these legal professionals is essential to be able to carry out oral hearings or issue resolutions. Therefore, many trials are expected to be suspended. They demand salary and labor improvements.

The lawyers of the Administration of Justice, the former judicial secretaries, from all over the Spanish State are summoned from today Tuesday to a indefinite strike to demand salary and labor improvements, a strike that can suspend hundreds of trials and hearings in the Basque Autonomous Community (CAV) and Navarre.

It is unknown how many lawyers will go on strike in Hego Euskal Herria (4,300 professionals are summoned in the State) and they have established minimum services. As explained by the lawyer of the court of first instance of Gernika (Bizkaia), Esther Urrutia, to Euskadi Irratia, in her absence, oral hearings cannot be held or judicial decisions can be issued (they are the ones that attest).

The three associations —National Association of Justice Administration Lawyers (CNLAJ), Progressive Union of Justice Administration Lawyers (UPSJ) and Independent Association of Justice Administration Lawyers (AINLAJ)— that are organizing the strike in the State They have been fighting with the Spanish government for some time. Last year they called several strikes without the Executive fulfilling their aspirations, although Justice maintains that, of their 11 demands, only one remains pending: the review of the productivity system and its complement in the professional career.

The conveners request remuneration improvements in accordance with the new functions that have been attributed to them after successive legal reforms. For the Ministry, however, any salary claim of the collective is “out of place”. His salary, says Justice, will grow on average by 14.76% in three years.

According to the figures provided by that department, after the negotiations carried out, in 2023 the salary of a lawyer who works in the court and is between levels 26 and 28 ranges between 39,011.80 and 59,537.42 euros, without taking into account their variable remuneration, which is “between 79 and 140% more than any civil servant in the State administration at the same levels”.

“This indefinite strike has no labor reason; it has clear political reasons,” said Secretary of State for Justice, Tontxu Rodríguez, who appealed to lawyers not to “hold hostages” to citizens.
