SNS against granting more power to trade unions

Slovak National Party (SNS) MP Milada Belásová said that SNS MPs might support some of the opposition’s proposals in the vote on the draft revision to the Labour Code. She said that the version already approved by the cabinet contains some elements that are not in line with the government’s programme.

Belásová said the SNS is against granting inappropriate powers to trade unions and thus the SNS will not support changes that increase trade unions’ powers but rather will vote according to their principles.
