Legal and Institutional Framework for Resolution of Collective Labour Disputes
The paper deals with the issue of the legal and institutional framework for the resolution of collective labour disputes. The most important international legal acts of the International Labour Organisation (ILO), the acts of the Council of Europe and the acts in the Republic of Macedonia are analysed. In addition, the paper analyses the role and responsibilities of institutions in Macedonia that are important in resolving this type of disputes. We consider such legal solution legally invalid because the state is given the chance to interfere in the process of peaceful of resolution of labour disputes, which violates the basic principles of neutrality and impartiality. Therefore, we consider it necessary to established an independent institution for resolving collective labour disputes.
