The rise of a pluralistic railway trade union movement is connected to the political changes that took place in eastern Europe in the early 1990s. Before 1990, there was only one railway trade union, the Trade Union of Hungarian Railway Workers (VSZ ). In the transitional period after 1990, two more strong and powerful railway unions were established – the Free Trade Union of Railway Workers (VDSZSZ ) and the Hungarian Engine Drivers’ Union (MOSZ ).  http://www.vsz.hu/  http://www.vdszsz.hu/  http://www.mosz.co.hu/new_MOSZ/

A new Labour Code has been introduced by Hungary’s government which aims to align the regulation of collective rights with that of contractual individual law enshrined in the country’s Civil Code. The Labour Code, in principle, allows collective agreements, agreements with works councils in companies where there are no unions, and individual labour contracts to regulate the content of work differently to that stipulated by law. To achieve further flexibility, it also now allows agreements to deviate in favour of the employer and not only in favour of the employee.

The number of companies in Hungary going into liquidation has increased dramatically since the beginning of the global financial and economic crisis.
