Romania: IFJ and UNI MEI condemn union-busting in public broadcaster

The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) and UNI MEI Global Union, have written a joint open letter to several Romanian authorities expressing serious concerns over union-busting actions in Romanian Public Service Television (SRTV).

The IFJ and UNI MEI Global Union have received numerous reports about repeated violations of labour rights, including attacks and threats on their affiliated organisation, the Romanian Union of Journalists, FAIR-Mediasind.

The letter was co-signed by IFJ General Secretary Anthony Bellanger and head of UNI MEI Global Union, Johannes Studinger.

Both organisations urge the Romanian President, Klaus Iohannis, and other officials to do their utmost to resolve the ongoing conflict in SRTV in a transparent and inclusive way and to ensure that labour and union rights are no longer threatened in Romania.
