  • Slovenia: Court approves earlier pay deal for public sector workers

    The Government of Slovenia has been ordered to pay millions of euros to public sector employees who didn’t receive an agreed pay rise after it was frozen as part of austerity measures. The Trade Union of State Bodies of Slovenia has won a case against the state in the Higher Court. The court ruled that a pay deal agreed in 2008 must be honoured, and the wages of about 20% of public sector employees should be raised. The money will be paid in two instalments with interest.

    A project initiated by the Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia focuses on the plight of young people in the labour market. A study, carried out as part of the project, has led to proposals for a range of measures to tackle Slovenia’s high youth unemployment including the revival of apprenticeships and employment counselling. The research shows that young people are having huge difficulties finding jobs: they wait longer for their first job than in the past, and are more likely to be unemployed long term.
  • Migrant workers report negative effects of crisis

    A report prepared by the Associazione Bruno Trentin [1], a research institute linked with Italy’s main trade union Cgil [2], has exmained the effect of the economic crisis on migrant workers in Italy. The impact of the crisis on migrants’ living and working conditions [3] is based on analysis of Istat Labour Force Survey (LFS [4]) figures. These were combines with the results of an ad hoc survey carried out with a sample of 1,000 migrant workers or jobseekers who had asked for support from Cgil union officials and offices in 10 out of 20 regions.
