Refusal to comply with provisions of collective agreements

There are numerous cases of non-compliance of the employer with the provisions of collective agreements, especially in the healthcare sector. This includes the matters of:
-  Organisation and salary calculations for on-call duties and 24-hour shifts in workplaces such as General Hospital Pirot; Health centre Uzice; Aranđelovac General Hospital and General Hospital Smederevska Palanka;
-  Employee compensation costs in case of a family member’s death – in: Health Centre Batočina; Pharmacy Gnjilane and Health Centre Bac;
-  Jubilee awards payment – in: Health Centre Kula; Health Centre Stari Grad, Belgrade; Blood Transfusion Institute Nis; Health centre Uzice and Institute for emergency medical assistance Niš;
-  Severance payment for retirement – in: Health Centre Niš; Clinical Hospital Zemun and General Hospital Valjevo;
-  Transfer arrangements – in Health Center Užice;
-  Compensation for transportation to and from workplace – in: Health Centre Gadžin Han; General Hospital in Kikinda and Pharmacy Belgrade;
-  Overtime payment – in: Children’s University Hospital in Belgrade; Providing administrative and technical conditions for trade union work - Aranđelovac General Hospital; Health centre Vladimirci; Health centre Uzice; Health centre Požega; Institute for Neonatology in Belgrade and Health center Zajecar;
-  Salaries – in: Utilities Services in Republic of Serbia;
-  Payment compensation for transportation, meal allowances, bonuses and per diems in relation to civil servants;
-  Salaries, in relation to employees in primary, secondary and boarding schools.
In general, it is very difficult to conclude collective agreements at the sectorial and national levels. In addition, there are often problems with the extension of duration of collective agreements, as only agreements that bind the employer that employs more than 50 per cent of workers in a given branch can be extended, subject to the decision of the Government
