Montenegro, República de - Employers threatened to sue strikers (2010)

The Confederation of Trade Unions of Montenegro (SSCG) reports that the right to strike is often not respected. When the trade union at Mikro, in Bijelo Polje, organised a strike to protest against unpaid salaries and allowances - in full compliance with the national procedures - the employer threatened to sue the union for EUR 100,000 in damages. A similar situation led to a strike by the local branch of the construction workers’ union at Prvoborac – Kamen i Beton, in Herzig Novi. Following the strike, the management gave the local trade union leader an official warning.
