Croatia: protest held over labour law changes

Hundreds of trade union members have taken part in a protest against labour law changes in the Croatian capital Zagreb.

The Croatian government is proposing labour law reforms that would provide more flexibility for employers.

Union member Drago Domazet complained: “The existing labour law is pretty good – and we can’t say that it’s as rigid as employers say. If the new law is passed, it’ll represent a twilight of labour.”

The rally came a day after unions organised a two-hour general strike – held in solidarity with workers from two companies who have not been paid their salaries for months.
