Anti-union discrimination: Workers employed at the Barkli Montenegro Hotel Otrant in Ulcinj went on strike on 4 May 2012 after they had not received their salaries for 17 months. Even though the strike was peaceful four trade union members were arrested and released after the intervention of the President of the municipality trade union. The court dismissed charges against the trade unionists.

Insufficient legal protection for anti-union discrimination: The Labour Act of 2008 does not specifically provide for dissuasive sanctions against anti-union discrimination for trade union activities by trade union members who are not trade union representatives.
