Unions unite in protest over pay, pensions and jobs

The Sanatatea health union and other EPSU affiliates joined a national trade union protest march on 7 June. They handed over a petition to the government criticising the lack of a coherent programme for creating workplaces and ensuring decent income and decent working conditions to the people. The protestors called for measures to eliminate undeclared work and tax evasion, to provide safe working conditions, a fair system of pay and pensions, equal opportunities for women and men and also a better integration of young people into the labour market. The unions also want to see harmonisation of national legislation with the international practice, including the ILO Conventions and the EU legislation.
