The Prime Minister of the Republic of Serbia, Ana Brnabić, recommended the Republic Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labour Disputes as an institutional mechanism for settlement of labour disputes at the press conference, on the occasion of signing of the Agreement between ‘FIAT Automobiles Serbia’ and the Independent Trade Union FCA, which ended the strike and formally reached the agreement on the conditions of continuing operations.[embedyt] https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWv8qcG-F58[/embedyt]The Government of the Republic of Serbia intervened in ‘FIAT Automobiles Serbia’ to reach an agreement, in order to avoid a complete stoppage of production in a company employing more than 2,500 workers, and prevent the GDP, exports and subcontractors from suffering as well. However, for all other similar disputes, as stated, there is an institutional mechanism, which is the Agency for Peaceful Settlement of Labour Disputes. She emphasised that this was a non-institutional mechanism because of the entire situation, but she recommended that in all other situations we return to the institutions responsible for the case, namely the Agency, as the only proper way to resolve such disputes.
