SSSS said it cannot support the law, which would weaken trade union rights and working conditions of their members. The union objects to the proposal for the severance pay to only cover the years of employment at the most recent employer and the payments of two rather than three average salaries upon retirement. Furthermore, the law would make an end to the extended application of collective agreements, which currently still exists and is supported by unions and employers alike.
