Summary/Abstract: In the context of recent legislative evolution in Romania, the reintroduction of the national collective labor contract represents significant progress in strengthening workers' rights and promoting social peace, contributing to the creation of a stable working environment and preventing conflicts. The promotion of structured social dialogue and collective negotiations facilitates the peaceful resolution of disputes and the promotion of equitable working conditions. However, the exclusion of the negotiation regarding the guaranteed minimum wage in the national collective labor contract and the fact that it no longer applies 'erga omnes' raises questions about its practical effectiveness. These restrictions are reflected in diminished interest from social partners in national-level negotiations, one year after the reintroduction of the national collective labor contract, with the stage of negotiations being in an incipient phase.
