21. 01. 2019.

The strike at the Republic Geodetic Authority launched by the Trade Union “Nezavisnost” of RGA and the Unified Trade Union of RGA ended on January 21 after meeting with the Minister of Labour, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs Zoran Đorđević and the representatives of the Cabinet of the Prime Minister Ana Brnabić. At the meeting, an agreement was reached and a compromise solution which was acceptable to all parties to the dispute, in order to reduce the harmful effects of the strike on the citizens of the Republic of Serbia.

The Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labour Disputes has joined the peaceful resolution process of this collective labour dispute at the proposal of the trade unions, with the consent of the employer on December 7, 2018. The strike was postponed and a joint recommendation was made by the trade unions and the employer to resolve the dispute before the Agency’s conciliator, but as the recommendation implied the approval of several ministries, it was necessary to also include the founder. By including the Minister of Labour, Employment, Veterans and Social Affairs Zoran Đorđević and the Cabinet of the Prime Minister Ana Brnabić, joint efforts resulted in an agreement which led to the termination of this strike, primarily in the interest of the citizens of the Republic of Serbia who were most affected by adverse consequences.
