Serbia -Employers lobby against new bill on strike -July 22, 2013

The government has presented a new bill on strike, intending to replace the current legislation dating from 1996. Amongst other things, the bill covers minimum service, venues for staging strikes, protection of property, and the method of resolving labour disputes. One of the controversies revolves around the venues where industrial actions can be undertaken. Currently actions can only take place on the premises of the employer, whereas the new law proposes to allow strikes on other locations as well. Trade unions have declared their general satisfaction with the draft bill, while they would prefer the principle of collective bargaining to be more firmly anchored in the text; employers have protested against the bill, arguing foreign investment will dry up if it comes into force.
