Romania - Union leader says government shows lack of professionalism - August 13, 2009

Bogdan Hossu, chairman of the National Trade Union Confederation (Cartel ALFA), has said that the government shows a lack of professionalism by its planned move to cut the working hours in the public sector.

Hossu told the press that the International Monetary Fund did not require from Romania a restructuring or salary cut, but its requirement was that all the spending made by the state be covered by revenues. He argued that restructuring, if needed, should have been made after a dialogue with the representatives of all sectors, i.e. education, health care and home affairs.

Currently a lot of staff involved, the union leader added, is working overtime.
