Bulgaria - Confederations demands legal strengthening of workers’ rights - May 9, 2011

The Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) has called for better legal protection of the social and labour rights of the country’s workers. “We expect some engagements to be undertaken with regard to future actions on behalf of the National Assembly,” said CITUB President Plamen Dimitrov. According to Dimitrov, social protection in Bulgaria has not reached the European level. He says his confederation has grounds to require legal amendments in relation to trade union association, especially in small private companies, and that there is also a need for amendments concerning collective negotiations and the right to strike.
