Serbia - Unionists dismissed (2011)

The management of Interlemind, in Leskovac, continuously threatened union leaders with dismissal. Saša Milenović, president of the company organisation of the Autonomous Metalworkers’ Union of Serbia (SSMS), and Dragan Stojković, president of the Industrial Workers’ Union Interlemind, were dismissed in July 2010 after a strike over unpaid wages that lasted more than two months. Ten further members of the striking committee were also threatened with dismissal. The local Labour Inspectorate overruled this decision as illegal in August 2010, and the union leaders were allowed to return to work.

The case of Zlatko Francuski and six other trade union committee members at Gorenje Tiki, in Stara Pazova, who were dismissed in August 2009 due to their trade union activities has still not been resolved by court. A hearing has been scheduled for February 2011.
