First Croatian Union of Platform Workers Established

The Union of Platform Workers (SRDP) has been established in June 2021 as part of the SSSH Trade Union Federation in Croatia.

The union representatives noted that they would fight, in the context of raising amendments to the Labour Act, for dignified working conditions and better entitlements for those who work in the platform economy. Iva Filipović, the union secretary-general, said that platform work is not legally regulated, almost 8 years after the arrival of platforms into Croatia. “This results in irregularities and violations of platform workers' rights which are not penalized.”

According to Mile Krivokuća, the SRDP leader: “the self-employed platform workers do not have, among other things, the right to paid sick leave or holiday, they do not have a determined minimum price of labor or insurance against occupational injury or other labor-related rights.”
