Within the project entitled Employment and Social Affairs Platform 2 (ESAP 2) implemented by the International Labor Organization, from 10 to 13 May on Zlatibor, training for mediators and arbitrators is held on "Improving the effectiveness of mediation in resolving labor disputes."

In addition to mediators and arbitrators from Serbia, the training was attended by representatives of agencies for the peaceful settlement of labor disputes from the Republic of Srpska (B&H) and Montenegro, as well as representatives of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The training was opened by Ada Huibregtse, ILO Chief Technical Adviser, while the expert part of the training and workshop was led by Malcolm Curie, an experienced ILO mediator and trainer. Conciliators and arbitrators had the opportunity to improve their skills in resolving individual and collective labor disputes through interactive workshops and exercises, as well as to exchange practical experiences with colleagues from different agencies.

Within the project, it is planned to hold another online training by the end of the year, where all conciliators and arbitrators will be welcome.

It aims to improve the institutional effectiveness of the labor dispute resolution mechanism. Also, the goal is to exchange experiences and learn from colleagues from different agencies for peaceful settlement of labor disputes in the Western Balkans.
