Abstract: The work “Management of labor conflicts in public health organizations” treats a very important
issue, of the p resent, with extensive and multiple implications for public health. The work can be considered
as an interdisciplinary study justified b y two arguments: first, it is essential to applied research step, the
knowledge and use of enshrined informational content in management literature, especially of models and
mechanisms of managerial activity on the administr ation of human resources, managerial style, mobilization
capacities, communication, coordination or decision ones and, not least the mechanisms characteristic t o
collective relations established between managers and employees; second, it is required for the
implementation phase of research findings, capitalization of a n informational sphere of law field, specifically,
labor law, because labor conflicts are based both on specific regulations of labor law and on a j uridical
literature, of great interest and of strict use for a concrete optimization of labor social relations.

1. Introduction
The work highlights, as a work concentrating on labor conflicts management in public health
organizations, the possibilities to improve the relations among the following three factors:
- management, understood as the formal ability of the leader to achieve performance in the
organization’s work with people;
- labor conflicts, i.e. conflicts between health professionals and public health organizations with
which they concluded the individual employment contract, based on failure to resolve claims
of professional, economic, social character or not giving rights that are based on labor law,
labor collective contract or the individual employment contract;
- public healthcare organizations, defined as public institutions entirely financed from own
revenues made under contracts with Social Health Insurance Houses. Without a doubt that the
activity of all healthcare organizations is influenced by economic or social factors, but as
resulting from the findings of this study, internal managerial factors have a determined role in
preventing labor conflicts and, as a consequence, in optimizing psychological climate at work,
thus ensuring a good quality of health services.
We found that healthcare organizations can feel a “ management pressure” forcing inert systems and
structures to become more flexible and to be concerned with the implementation of modern practices
specific to management in healthcare organizations. In healthcare there must be exceeded the
“necessity management” characterized by resorting to management only when crises or conflicts reach
climax. It is true that we can learn something from crisis or conflicts, we draw conclusions, but the
consequences of the unsolved crisis or failures of unsolved conflicts, in due time, are very costly.
