Labor rights as legal constitutional category – Kosovo in relation to interna-
tional labor organization
MSc. Muhamet Vokrri
University of Pristina
The purpose of this study paper is the analyzing of the processes that followed the labor
relations, its historical development respectively, since its first concrete efforts from the
representatives of the workers (unions) till the establishment of the International Labor
Organization (1919). As it is known the labor law presents one of the fundamental rights of
the human being, thus such rights (right to work, freedom of work) are constitutional category
and protected in whole legal systems of the present time.
The efforts to install such positive spirit were not easy. Genuinely is known that bearers of
progressive developments in this field (end of XIX century) were organized groups of workers
(unions), then initiatives from various statesmen and later to be materialized from the
governments of present time followed by the addressing and protecting of these rights in
international aspect.
Practice has proved that creation, purpose and activity of International Labor Organization
has provided its benefits in achieving the primary principles of work, such rights proclaimed
by the majority of world states and embedded in their highest legal act (Constitution) of the
organization in question (ILO).
We consider that bearers of government politics of Kosovo, responsible sectors of this field
respectively, shall regard these rules set and implemented by this international body and at
the same time make maximal efforts towards advancing the current legislation in this field as
well as to utilize all necessary resources in order to achieve the vital goal which is the adherence
in ILO. This would certainly have an impact on minimizing the occurrence of eventual
discontent from the organized groups (Unions) as well as other classes and naturally the
progress and positive effects in this field would be visible and useful for the society.
Keywords: International Labor Organization, Kosovo, Constitution, Convents, Unions.
Viewing from the historical aspect, the issues of enhancing the rights of work was a
continuous subject of demands from various social stratum (employer organizations)
not well organized in the beginning and then later at the level of Unions1, who at that
time addressed their concern to the politician elites of the government, but
unfortunately the desired level of protecting these rights into a better level they
achieved far later. In the beginning, the idea that labor is a principal right for whole
society was a demand that initially was addressed during the time of French-Bourgeois
1The first union actions were held in England, 1851.
