Croatia -Protesters: new labour bill detrimental to women workers -March 08, 2014

Activists, who organised a march on International Women´s Day, said the new labour bill will have devastating effects on women´s working conditions. The protesters demanded a working week of up to 40 hours and eight hours overtime, fixed-time employment contracts for no longer than two years, limiting the number of fixed-term employment contracts per company and reinstatement of women in the same job after maternity leave. The activists also protested against the government´s intentions to cut back on educational spending, pointing out that this will disproportionally affect women.
