The General Secretary of the European Trade Union Confederation, Luca Visentini, said after the EU ministers gave green light to the beginning of accession negotiations with both countries.

"Rapid progress towards better wages, working conditions, and trade union rights in Albania and North Macedonia should be an important part of the process of joining the EU.
