Slovakia - Unions initiate petition on labour code - January 24, 2011

The confederation of trade unions (KOZ) has initiated a petition in an effort to try and collect the 350,000 signatures needed for a referendum over the Labour Code. The government is scheduled to discuss the draft Code in April. Labour Minister Jozef Mihál has declared he will not yield to the pressure, nor become involved in any eventual referendum. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Iveta Radičová has said that the government is ready for a dialogue with the trade unions, “but not in the form of pressure or threats” (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 November 2010).
