SSN journalists' union leaves KOZ labour body

The board of the Slovak Syndicate of Journalists (SSN) decided to terminate its membership in the Trade Unions Confederation (KOZ) on November 11. SSN chairman Ján Fule said that the SSN would preserve its trade union nature and would continue to provide financial and legal assistance to its members.

Fule said the SSN would stop paying membership fees to the KOZ, which he said had wasted union money on poorly-prepared protests and funding its large staff. The SSN also objected to the use of the September 25 national union protest rally in Bratislava for political ends. Fule called KOZ leader Ivan Saktor's calls for a general strike "irresponsible."
