Romania - Unions intensify demands to fix Social Dialogue and labour rights - December 31, 2015

The trade unions have sought European and global reinforcements in their struggle to restore labour rights. The unions have been in a long struggle to restore their right to national and sector level collective bargaining. Collective bargaining was the practice in the country, until Law 62 on Social Dialogue was passed by executive order in 2011. The law abolished national level collective bargaining and severely impeded the practice of sector level collective agreements. In May this year, trade unions introduced amendments to the 2011 law that will strengthen collective bargaining.
