Confederation protests over labour law reforms

The ALFA Cartel trade union confederation, including EPSU affiliates Hipocrat and Sigol, organised a number of demonstrations in cities across the country on 2-4 October. The protests were over the coalition government’s failure to do anything about the labour law reforms that it promised to repeal when in opposition. The Confederation reports that the undermining of social dialogue has meant 1,000 fewer collective agreements this year. There have been attacks on pay and conditions, but no sign of any increase in jobs.
