Legal assistance

The UATUC legal representatives, in territorial offices covering the whole territory of Croatia, provide the UATUC-affiliated trade unions’ members free legal assistance in solving labour conflicts, and they represent them before competent courts.

On an annual basis, the UATUC legal representatives represent our members in several thousand labour disputes. More than 90 percent of those disputes are resolved to the benefit of workers. Unfortunately, a part of these judgments cannot be implemented due to employer’s insolvency. Majority of labour disputes are managed due to non-payment of wages and other material claims, or due to illegal termination of employment contracts.
