SDĽ again unhappy with Mikloš

The ruling coalition SDĽ party said yesterday it was unhappy with the way Deputy Prime Minister Ivan Mikloš had been handling the cabinet’s formal cooperation with employers and labour. The ‘tripartite council’, where the state conducts negotiations with labour and business, has not sat since late August when the government proposed raising gas prices by 20%. Unions have vowed to hold a huge demonstration October 17.
