On 1 –st of May thousands of workers from all over Kosovo joined the protest demonstration organized by Union of Independent Trade Unions of Kosovo – (BSPK) “We want work”, “We want decent salaries, not charity”, “Stop corruption”, “Stop work without contracts” “We want Social Fund” – these were the main slogans of the action. The demonstrators urged BSPK to make more pressure to the Government and Parliament of the Republic of Kosovo, that worker’s voice must be heard. BSPK is aware of the fact that Kosovo is in its first days of establishing as a newest country in the world, but 100 days period for the new government was to long, since they didn’t find time during this period to meet with legitimate worker’s representatives of BSPK, and they were not ready to hear workers demands till now. Solidarity messages were sent from ITUC, PERC, and other trade union confederations from Montenegro, Slovenia, Croatia, Lithuania, Albania and Italy.
