New deal for Romanian road workers

Romania’s RADJP road construction company has concluded a new collective agreement with the Constanta County Roads Union. Employees with more than five years’ experience will benefit from two extra days off, while those who work in difficult, dangerous or harmful conditions, as well as young and disabled workers, will benefit from an additional three-day holiday.

Workers will receive social assistance for the birth or adoption of each child, and daily meal vouchers. The social partners agreed to resume negotiations if tax legislation changes the value of net salaries, so as to reduce the impact on employees.

"Throughout the negotiations, there was a very good collaboration with the Constanta County Roads Union, a newly established structure which represents 270 employees out of the total of 310,” said Gabriel Răzvan Zagon, general director of RADJD Constanța. “These new benefits will surely attract new qualified and motivated people to work within the company.”
