On July 29, 2021, the Department of Labour, by means of ruling No. 1905/027, issued a statement determining how the right to request specific information for collective bargaining should be exercised when the commencement of collective bargaining has been suspended as a consequence of the pending qualification of minimum services and emergency teams. Specifically, this statement indicates the following:
I. The suspension of the beginning of collective bargaining, as a result of the qualification of minimum services and emergency teams, does not prevent the exercise of the right to request information for the preparation of bargaining, and may be executed by the union organizations in the legal opportunity initially established for such purposes.
II. Once the 90 days that guarantee the validity of the information have elapsed and the commencement of collective bargaining is still suspended, the employer shall update the information provided.
