French unions FO Services publics et santé at Congress in Rouen support Hungarian unions together with EPSU, January 2019
(17 January 2019) The Hungarian unions are organizing a national protest against the slave laws of the Orban government, 19 January. EPSU supports the protests. Workers and the unions are protesting the law that allows the employers to demand up to 400 hours of overtime of people. Payment of overtime can be at normal rates and the employer gets up to three years to actually compensate the workers for the overtime. The law neglects the effect overtime has on health and safety of workers and on work-life balance.
