Workers' rights violations

Union busting

In Bulgaria, workers faced obstacles to joining trade unions, as employers terminated unionised workers' contracts, harassed trade union leaders, established yellow unions and refused to collect union dues, despite check-off agreements.

Right to collective bargaining

In Bulgaria, employers often refused to engage in collective bargaining and tried to undercut trade unions by offering individual advantages to workers outside of concluded collective agreements.
