Report from screening for Chapter 19 to be adopted this week

TANJUG_maliBELGRADE – Head of Serbia’s team in accession negotiations with the EU Tanja Miščević said Monday that the EU member-states should adopt a report from the screening for Chapter 19, dealing with social policy and employment, before the end of the week.
An action plan and an analytic database of all the research and requirements necessary for Chapter 19 negotiations are being worked on, Miščević said while opening a round table titled ‘Conflict resolution: negotiations, strike and peaceful resolution of labor disputes’ in Belgrade.

For the first time in the EU accession negotiating process, a country will, before opening chapters, be able to rely on an analytic database of all research conducted so far in each of the chapters and know all requirements to be able to prepare negotiating documents in the best way possible and where possible, ask for transitional periods, said Miščević.

I am happy to see that besides the election campaign, investments, and talk on political issues for Chapters 23 and 24, we are talking here today about social dialogue and the workers’ role in it, and the role of trade unions and resolving labor disputes, Miščević said.
