04/12/2012 - This morning a group of firefighters protested outside the Ricardo Arango Station in Calidonia against the proposed new salary scale, saying it violates previous agreements.
The protesters indicated that the scale does not standardize the salaries of all firefighters, as was previously agreed.
The protest came a day after Panama Fire Chief Pablo Tuñón defended the scale, saying the firefighters would get the promised pay increases and bonuses over the next two years.
The protesters also demanded the government stop the persecution of firefighters who have expressed their dissatisfaction in the media.
