Trade union founded for Bulgarian Orthodox clergy, lay employees

Sofia (ENInews). The founding of a trade union for Bulgarian Orthodox Church priests and church employees has angered at least one member of the senior hierarchy of the church, who denounced it as being against the church's canon law. According to Bulgarian-language media reports on 13 December, the union will be part of Podkrepa, one of the southeastern European country's two national trade union federations. In the north-western town of Vratsa, priests said that they had not been paid on time for a long time and their statutory health and retirement insurance had not been paid, the Standart daily newspaper reported. The Vratsa Metropolitan Kipriyan said, however, it is "absurd" for priests to have a trade union and that this is against the church's own law. [478 words, ENI-10-0807]
