Workers to mark Labor Day with unpaid salaries or pay cuts and pressures


Unpaid salaries or pay cuts, workers pressured to sign contracts terminating their employment, misuse of state aid for the salary scheme and violations of the workplace safety law are some of the few violations of worker’s rights as North Macedonia marks International Workers’ Day – May Day.

The two largest trade unions in the country, the Association of Trade Unions of Macedonia (SSM) and the Confederation of Free Trade Unions (KSS), in separate statements ahead of this year’s May Day note that violations of workers’ rights have been on the rise in the past two years. It has been reported that employees have been pressured to sign employment termination contracts, forced to take leave all the while COVID-19 protection protocols haven’t been respected. Also, there have been reports of employment contracts being transformed from an indefinite period to definite.
