Trade unions, members of State-Employees Alliance to picket Parliament on Tuesday
The executive president of ‘Spiru Haret’ Federation, Marius Nistor, on Monday told Agerpres that due to attend the protests are some 1,300 people.
‘Picketing the Parliament Palace on September 15, 2009 is the first of the range of pickets decided by federations, members of the State-Employees Alliance at the meeting of September 10, 2009,’ say trade unionists.
Among the protests’ objectives are the Government’s giving up to assuming responsibility before the Chamber of Deputies and the Senate of the framework draft law on single pay for state employees and its submission for discussion in Parliament, cessation of layoffs in the state-run sector, non-acceptance of forced unpaid leave.
Trade unions protest in this way against the expected effects of the framework Law on single pay for state employees: loss of rights won by state employees, reduction of revenues for state employees, massive layoffs etc.
‘Our measure is also a protest over the way the Government has decided to promote this Law infringing the elementary rules of social dialogue and by disregarding the institutions of the state of law,’ say trade unionists.
