According to the National Federation of Trade Unions of Public and Social Service Workers, the forest rangers are demanding an increase in salaries, the granting of supplements for police duties, an increase in the compensation percentages for work done on public holidays, an increase in the number of personnel and the opening of career promotion competitions.

According to a statement from the Federation, the forest rangers are also calling for the creation of a national corps of forest rangers within the structure of the Nature and Environment Protection Service (SEPNA) of the Republican National Guard.

The rangers were integrated into the GNR's SEPNA in 2006 and were initially scheduled to be extinguished, but were reactivated in 2018 after the major fires of 2017.

Currently, the GNR has about 400 rangers in service and their mission is to monitor and investigate illegal activities in the areas of forestry, hunting and fishing.
