Head of Independent Trade Unions, Atdhe Hykolli, is expected to send a request to Prime Minister Albin Kurti to begin meetings in order to discuss the law on salaries. In addition, the union representatives also underlined the need to raise the issue of the law on health insurance and pension schemes in meetings with Kurti.
