Another RSD30 million for SES
The Minister of Labour, Employment, Veteran and Social Affairs Zoran Djordjevic has said that additional RSD30 million have been allocated from the budget of his ministry for the work of the Social and Economic Council of the Republic of Serbia (SES).
“RSD10 million will be allocated for each socio-economic partner belonging to that body,” Djordjevic has said at the press conference in the Serbian government, following session of the Social and Economic Council.
Partners of the Serbian government in that body are the Serbian Association of Employers and two representative trade unions – the Confederation of Autonomous Trade Unions of Serbia and the Trade Union Confederation “Nezavisnost.”
Djordjevic has said that he expects improvement of the work of not only the Social and Economic Council but such councils on the local level in the coming years, via additional allocations from the budget.
He has added that agreement is made with Minister of Finance Sinisa Mali to also include local socio-economic partners in preparation or amendment of the laws. “They will certainly contribute to better quality of these laws and to them having fewer remarks,” Djordjevic has said.
He has stated that the Ministry of Labour has accepted an initiative of socio-economic partners to compensate employees in case of work-related injuries, as well as the initiative on amendment of the rulebook on professional diseases.
“Two things are of utmost importance to us – all laws prepared by the Government should be in the interest of both our citizens and our country. We will adhere to that”, Djordjevic has said.
