Bulgaria -Sofia airport management tears up list of pro-strike signatures -October 10, 2013

The Federation of Transport Trade Unions in Bulgaria (FTTUB) has found itself in an increasingly hostile conflict with the management of Sofia airport. The management has been ignoring workers’ internationally agreed labour rights on the freedom of association – as well as their rights to information, consultation, protection, and to conclude a collective bargaining agreement. Collective agreement negotiations that were initiated in July 2013 have yielded no results and all cleaning jobs at the airport have been outsourced unilaterally and without consultation during the same period. Trade unionists have started collective signatures for industrial action, but report that their lists were torn up by management representatives.
