Unions call on members to vote for "change"

REPRESENTATIVES of the Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) umbrella labour group intend to call on participants of the May Day rally in Banská Bystrica to take part in parliamentary elections on June 17 and to vote for change in government policy.

The KOZ's vice-president for trade union policy, Eugen Škultéty, reported that the confederation expects a turnout of several thousand people. The trade union will evaluate reforms in the health care sector, education, the pension scheme and tax systems at the rally, the SITA news agency wrote.

Trade unionists will present their objections to the reforms, propose concrete measures and appeal to trade unionists to vote for parties with programs close to the KOZ's agenda.

Škultéty said that the KOZ regards the program of the opposition Smer party as closest to its interests.
