Romania - Social partners ask Minister of Labour to resign - January 19, 2011

Leaders of union confederations and employers’ associations have both asked for the resignation of the Minister of Labour, Ioan Botis. They are highly dissatisfied with the way negotiations took place on the new Labour Code. The minister blocked any resolution on talks over the Code, the President of the ALFA Cartel union confederation, Bogdan Hossu, declared. He said that there were many issues with the new Code to be solved, related to working time and termination of employment but also to the right to strike, and voiced his belief that Parliament would not vote such a project.
