Prilep, 1st November. Employers from Prilep and surrounding cities support the initiative to adopt a new Labour Law which will include the requirements of the Organisation of Employers of Macedonia. Senior ORM representatives last Tuesday, November 1st, as part of the project supported by the EU, presented the shortcomings of the current labor legislation in Macedonia, which does not allow a real social dialogue with the workers, but many of the issues that are normally negotiate in a collective agreement are governed by law and sometimes to the detriment of workers, employers or both sides. Furthermore, the law is full of ambiguities which represent an obstacle in interpretation even to the judges. ORM has prepared draft amendments to the current labor law, but because of the huge number of requested changes, we are committed to preparing a new law that will contribute to increase the competitiveness and the growth of the Macedonian economy.
