Bulgaria - Plea for renewal of social dialogue - February 28, 2017

The Confederation of Independent Trade Unions in Bulgaria (CITUB) has suggested that the country’s president could help in the renewal of the dialogue between the employer organisations and the trade unions, after a meeting with the head of State. Earlier this month President Radev met with representatives of the Podkrepa Labour Confederation as well. At many sectoral levels the dialogue proceeds smoothly, collective agreements are being signed and there is partnership. CITUB recalled that the stagnation in the employer-unionist relations in the tripartite dialogue was prompted by controversies regarding the minimum working wage and the minimum social security thresholds.
