Estonia -Not ready for trade unions? -May 08, 2013

According to a retiring head of the Trade Union Confederation the country has a long way to go until it reaches the level of trade unions in Scandinavia. It’s not enough just to pay 1% of your salaries to trade unions in membership fees. ‘People must want to protect their interests. This is where we are way behind,’ he said. Scandinavian countries have launched series of actions aimed at strengthening trade union movement in the Baltic countries.
