EPSU supports the Trade Union Health Federation of Kosova in its opposition to the new Health Law of Kosovo

Brussels, 30 January 2013



For several months now EPSU's Kosovar member organisation “Federata e Sindikatave të Shëndetësisë së Kosovës” (FSSHK), the Trade Union Health Federation of Kosova, has been advocating and campaigning at national and local level to prevent from a promulgation of the new Health Law by Atifete Jahjaga, President of the Republic of Kosovo. To underpin FSSHK's demands, a petition has been signed in 2012 by more than 6,000 health workers of Kosovo.

FSSHK demands a number of changes. They in particular have concerns with regard to the non-compliance of the new legislation with the anti-discrimination law, with labour law and with the law on the prevention of conflicts of interest of the Republic of Kosovo. The four main objectives of FSSHK in view of Health Law of Republic of Kosovo are listed in EPSU's letters of support (see below).

The legislation has been approved by the Parliament of the Republic of Kosovo on 13 December 2012 and is now under scrutiny at the Constitutional Court of the Republic of Kosovo.

EPSU has supported the demands for revisions by letters of support addressed to both the President and the Constitutional Court of of the Republic of Kosovo.
