Bulgaria - Essential services and the right to strike - June 30, 2016

In a country update on the latest developments in working life in the first quarter of 2016 it is reported that medical doctors and their co-workers, and policemen and prison guards organised national protests against proposed reforms in their sector, though they are not permitted to strike. General practitioners, medical employees and doctors from private and state-owned hospitals organised protests against reforms proposed by the Ministry of Health. Their protest was supported by the Bulgarian Medical Association. The Constitutional Court has also rejected the Ministry's reforms.
