Also Thursday, the leader of the Confederation of Free Syndicates in Kosovo, Bahri Shabani, announced the planned sealing of a Social Pact among trade unions, employers and the Ministry of Work. Shabani said the accord would be aimed at regulating the rights and duties of workers through a collective labour contract and would serve as the basis for future legislative initiatives.
