Serbia - Undercover journalist signals social dumping - February 28, 2017

Serbia and Slovakia have signed agreements concerning social issues that could be expanded in order to encompass cooperation and exchange information between their labour inspectorates. The decision comes in the wake of a recent report by a Serbian journalist who worked incognito for three months in allegedly dire conditions at the Samsung plant in Galanta (Slovakia). The reporter claimed that he had worked along with many other illegal Serbian workers at Samsung in Galanta without a proper work permit in what he called slave-like conditions and for a woeful salary. According to the labour ministry, there could be hundreds of Serbian nationals employed illegally in Slovakia.
