The up to date Labour Code of Georgia, which has replaced the Soviet Labour Code in 2006, and has become an organic law of Georgia in 2010, does not include the notion of Trade Union. The Code represents union of workers, which can be created by two or more employees, as a subject of collective labour relations (the current edition of the Labour Code, Article 41 I). The given short overview concerns the issue of the changes planned around the freedom of assembly and collective labour relations and of recovering the institute of Trade Union in the Labour Code.
