Employers will contest tripartite bill at Constitutional Court

Representatives of the National Union of Employers (RÚZ) and the Slovak Association of Employers have decided to file a complaint at the Slovak Constitutional Court against the tripartite bill. The revision to the tripartite law signed by President Ivan Gašparovič into law on March 6 also indirectly amended the Act on Collective Bargaining.

RÚZ secretary Martin Hošták reported that, according to the change, “higher level” collective agreements forged in a certain sector of the economy will now apply to all businesses in that sector, even if they were not part of the collective bargaining process, which is at odds with the freedom-of-contract principle and thus with the Slovak Constitution.
