Bosnia and Herzegovina
The Solidarity Center works with Bosnia and Herzegovina unions to ensure enforcement of national labor laws and, through workshops with union leaders and members, assists workers in understanding and enforcing workplace safety legislation.
The Solidarity Center works with Montenegro union partners to address environmental and health and safety issues for historically disenfranchised workers who, with Solidarity Center assistance, formed a union affiliated with a national union federation.
In partnership with the Solidarity Center, Serbian unions are deploying a national network of trade union activists to better coordinate union activities and improve the quality of workplace safety and health monitoring. Unions are promoting the use of bargaining agreements with employers to expand safety and health protections for all workers, including those who are not union members, and are developing provincial safety and health committees for improving safety in non-unionized workplaces. These programs improve local environmental conditions by strengthening union interaction with government agencies, occupational physicians and environmental civil society groups.
