Workers rally in support of Labour Code changes

Almost 2,000 trade unionists from around Slovakia demonstrated their support for the proposed amendment to the Labour Code at May Day celebrations organized by the Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) in the central Slovak town of Banská Bystrica and elsewhere.

"If the amendment to the Labour Code is approved by parliament, it will finally give protection to employees and give them back their social standards that were infringed on by the previous government," said the president of KOZ, Miroslav Gazdík. "It went further in this (infringement) than any other right-wing government in Europe."

Deputy Speaker of Parliament Anna Belousovová of the Slovak National Party, MEP Vladimír Maňka of Smer and Mayor Ivan Saktor of Banská Bystrica, who was also the former president of KOZ, said they were sure parliament will pass the amendment.
