Finally, the letter to the mentioned ministries proposes more lobbying during Croatia’s presidency of the Council of the EU, through new budgeting of EU funds, with the aim of opening greater opportunities for projects in tourism. In this regard, improvements and simplifications are proposed measures Permanent seasonal, in such a way that the compensation for the time when the permanent seasonal worker is not working is support outside the measures to encourage employment or co-financing of the salary (contributions to and from the salary) during the time when the permanent seasonal worker is not working.Also, for employment on indefinitely (regardless of age) it is proposed to introduce incentives in the form of exemption from paying contributions from and to the salary for a period of three years. In order to improve working and employment conditions in the tourism sector, it is proposed to regulate the control of extended branch collective agreements, because the basic goal of the social partners is to introduce order and apply equal minimum rights and obligations for all workers and employers. Effective control is necessary in order to achieve the basic goals of the expanded application of collective agreements, which are: reduction of unfair competition, gray economy and payment of wages “on hand” stand out from the Social Council.

Therefore, it is possible to apply the redistribution in the maximum duration and a shortened daily rest of 8 hours. “The proposals of these two measures are explained by the fact that the stability of employment is a prerequisite for the regulation of housing, family community and living standards in general so that workers have an interest in working and staying in a particular community. It is especially important for tourism to keep the local population in tourist places and ensure the authenticity of the offer and long-term quality of tourist services. If the local population has quality working and living conditions for tourists, that destination will be pleasant and attractive, thus ensuring the long-term development of tourism. ” emphasize from the Social Council in its statement. The assessment of the Social Council, which consists of representatives of trade unions (STUH and SIKD) and employers, is that the issue of availability of the necessary labor force is a priority for further and long-term sustainable development of tourism. They also believe that providing the best possible conditions for employment and work with the aim of greater safety and satisfaction of workers in the tourism sector is in the common interest of all social partners. Therefore, the Social Council for Tourism proposes to the ministries to introduce additional incentives for year-round employment as a demographic measure of stable labor relations for the local population and retention of young people in the Republic of Croatia.last_img read more

SU offered him last summer.The PSA Cardinals (New York) point guard ran an offense that also featured two fellow Orange targets, forward Mohamed Bamba and wing Brandon Randolph. Green had 40 more assists in total league play than the second-highest player. His 21 points and six assists helped the Cardinals overcome an 18-point second-half deficit in the tournament’s semifinal on Saturday night.“He’s tough. Really, really tough,” Carl Arrigale, his coach at Neumann-Goretti (Pennsylvania) High School, said. “To be that size and survive, you have to shoot. And he can. He’s not afraid of anything.”Scout.com considered the four-star guard the 51st best prospect in March, but after winning the state class AAA championship and averaging 10.5 assists per game during the EYBL season, he’s up to five stars and No. 20. He’s jumped at least 15 spots on ESPN.com and 247Sports.com as well.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThere is a 71 percent chance Green chooses Duke, 247Sports’ Crystal Ball predicts.Green likes Syracuse and has a good relationship with SU assistant coach Gerry McNamara, Arrigale said. Arrigale has played a fast, small-ball lineup with man defense since Green’s been at Neumann-Goretti, but he doesn’t think Green would have trouble transitioning to zone or struggle with size because he’s consistently matched up with players 4 and 5 inches taller than him in high school.Green has started for the Philadelphia basketball powerhouse since his sophomore year. He hit two buzzer-beating game-winners that season, Arrigale said, one in front of a jeering student section after losing the lead against future University of Nevada Las Vegas standout Derrick Jones. The other came against a player that a ranking site listed ahead of Green for best point guard in the city.“He plays with a little chip on his shoulder, in a good way,” Arrigale said. “He’s thinking about who’s ahead of him on whatever ranking. … His size doesn’t worry me. He’s not much different than Gerry (McNamara). Those two see eye to eye.“And when’s the last time (Syracuse) cut the nets down?” Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+ If he commits, he will be Syracuse’s second scholarship guard under 6 feet tall since at least the 1992-93 season. Five-foot-10 James Thues played the 2000-01 and 2001-02 seasons at Syracuse before transferring to Detroit. Thues didn’t shoot much, but he played the role of pickpocket, ranking sixth nationally with 101 steals during the 01-02 season.Putting Green at the top of SU’s 2-3 zone defense would be a departure from the norm for SU head coach Jim Boeheim, who traditionally recruits tall, rangy guards with long wingspans. Syracuse’s last four point guards have been 6-foot-6 Michael Carter-Williams, 6-foot-3 Tyler Ennis and Kaleb Joseph and 6-foot-7 Michael Gbinije.However, using smaller guards is not unprecedented. 2007 and 2008 point man Jonny Flynn stood 6 foot.“Quade’s not afraid of whoever’s in front of him, or the moment,” Arrigale said. “He doesn’t think anybody’s better than him, 5-5 or 6-5.”last_img read more
