Croatia - Unions call off general strike - November 25, 2010

Public sector unions have called off a series of actions that could have led to a general strike on 10 December. The unions were demanding a referendum on trade union and employment rights but have now got the agreement from Prime Minister Jadranka Kosor that a referendum will be held that would reduce the threshold of signatures required to call a referendum from 450,000 to 200,000. This will be on the same day as the referendum on joining the European Union (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 June, July-August and October 2010).
