Self-employed accuse Fico of trying to divide them

The Slovak Association of Small Enterprises (SAMP), the Slovak Trade Union (SZZ) and the Slovak Trade Association (ZPS) said that Prime Minister Robert Fico's talks with the Slovak Trade Chamber on March 28 were an attempt to break the unity of sole-traders.

SAMP, SZZ and ZPS still disagree with the proposed amendment to the Labour Code because of the negative impact it would have on the self-employed. They are disappointed that Fico made time for individual talks with the chairman of one organization but did not accept a written invitation to discuss the topic with all of them.
