Slovenia -Unionists call for more social dialogue -August 28, 2012

Unionists have called for a social agreement to get the country out of the crisis and avoid tensions. The head of the ZSSS trade union confederation says politicians underestimate the value of a tripartite agreement and are frightened of talking to trade unionists ahead of a pension and labour law reform. ZSSS stated that a social pact would address the now rising tensions in the country and send out a good signal of stability that would benefit the recovery and financial stability. The unions recently expressed concerns over both the pension reform and the abolition of the paid lunch break contained in the labour law reform. The unionist also warned that in the absence of a social dialogue, actions can be expected this autumn.
