Czech Republic - Unions plan nationwide action on labour code reforms - January 18, 2011

At a press conference of the CMKOS trade union confederation, it has been announced that the unions in 2011 will focus on health care, pensions and the labour code reforms that are currently being prepared by the government. Against this backdrop, the unions plan to organise what is called a nationwide union meeting on 19 February. At the same press conference, CMKOS economist Jaroslav Ungermann said that the development of the Czech economy in 2011 will be worse than unions estimated last year, partly due to the development of prices on global markets. He explained that the Czech economy has arrived in a deflationary state and that foreign trade is developing unfavourably.
