Employers press for their changes to the Labour Code draft

The Slovak Association of Employers (AZZZ) and the National Union of Employers (RÚZ) both supported the AZZZ’s main negotiator, Rastislav Machunka, who said social dialogue at the tripartite level had come to an end after the ‘social partners’ talks failed on March 26.

Both employer organizations insist that the stances and conduct of Labour Ministry representatives considerably harmed the employers' faith in the ministry's ability to fairly take part in social dialogue.

Members of the AZZZ, the RÚZ, and the Chamber of Commerce and Industry want government to consider employers’ arguments and objections to the draft amendment to the Labour Code, which is the focus of the current disputes.

They ask for principal changes to those regulations in the Labour Code amendment that they say might curb employment, slow economic growth, limit foreign investment, and threaten competitiveness.

Employers want to discuss the draft most of all with trade unions. The Trade Union Confederation (KOZ) announced, however, that it would negotiate the draft with employers only on the condition that Labour Ministry representatives are present.
