    The EU Directive establishing a general framework for equal treatment in
    employment and occupation (Directive 2000/78/EC [1]) was adopted in November
    2000 (EU0102295F [2]). The Directive seeks to lay down a general framework
    for combating discrimination, as regards employment and occupation, on the
    grounds of: religion or belief; disability; age; and sexual orientation. It
    is to be implemented by the EU Member States by 2 December 2003 (with a
    possible later deadline for the provisions on age and disability
    discrimination, if Member States see this as necessary).

    A European Court of Justice (ECJ) Advocate-General, Dámaso Ruiz-Jarabo
    Colomer, issued his opinion [1] on 10 July 2003 in Case C-138/02, /Brian
    Francis Collins v Secretary of State for Work and Pensions/. This case,
    referred to the ECJ by courts in the UK, concerns the payment of social
    security benefit to citizens of the EU in a Member State in which they have
    no roots and with whose labour market they have no connection.

    In early August 2003, Miron Mitrea, the Minister of Transport, Construction
    and Tourism, announced a restructuring of the national railway system,
    stating that this would result in the redundancy of 19,000 employees of the
    public rail companies by 30 September 2003. Trade unions reacted promptly,
    considering unacceptable both the size of workforce reduction and the short
    timescale for implementing it. They argued that a rail transport strategy
    agreed by the government and social partners in 2001 provides that jobs are
    to be cut over a 13-year period, following a major modernisation of
    infrastructure.

    Following a recent sharp conflict over the planned reform of the healthcare
    sector (HU0306102N [1]), a new dispute emerged between public sector trade
    unions and the government in summer 2003, this time in the education sector
    after the Ministry of Education (Oktatási Minisztérium, OM [2]) issued a
    draft plan for reform of higher education on 15 July.
