Kosovo - Kosovo legal (2012)

With the adoption of the Law on Labour on 1 November 2010 an important step was taken to solidify the trade union rights situation in Kosovo. The new Law recognises the right to freedom of association – a right already guaranteed by the 2008 Constitution – as well as the right to strike, but provides that these rights shall be further regulated by special laws.

The Law on Strikes was adopted on 22 July 2010, while the Law on Trade Union Organisations was adopted on 28 July 2011 and Law on Social and Economic Council was adopted on 21 July 2011. The Law on Labour and Law on Trade Union Organisations regulates the conclusion of collective contracts at the enterprise, branch and state level, but fails to explicitly prohibit anti-union discrimination.
