Sergeants of the FFAA: reorganization of careers transformed by opportunities in disaster


We had left with the best wishes, trusting the Defense Staff and always showing willingness and collaboration in the preliminary phase of the reorganization. Despite this, in the end incomprehensible logic prevailed that mortified our colleagues.

We have tried in every way, in recent months to convince the Defense Staff that the principle of equiordination between the Armed Forces and the Police Forces was guaranteed.

We are the only role to which a real difference in treatment has been certified in the transitional regime with the equal ranks of the Police Forces.

We have also asked with numerous documents to resolve a historical problem of the role known as "958" but without our proposals being accepted. The solution identified by the Defense General Staff does not satisfy and enhances the non-commissioned officers of the role of sergeants.

Also the other proposals of the reorganization of the Defense General Staff leave a large slice of staff that does not benefit from the provision unsatisfied.

The Defense Staff, not taking care of our proposals, imposed on the staff solutions not shared with the Military Representation.

We therefore appeal to the Chief of Defense Staff, the Minister and Parliament who will have to evaluate the provision so that an opportunity does not turn into a disaster like the 1995 reform.
