ECONOMIC BRIEFS

Cabinet green-lights Tripartite Law

At its sitting on February 3, the cabinet approved a draft 'Tripartite Law' which would set the rules of economic and social partnership between the state, employers and workers when resolving important economic and social issues.

The Tripartite Law also specifies the exact powers of the Council for Economic and Social Agreement as the tripartite negotiating authority. Government, employers and trade unions have equal representation in the 21-member Council. The Council produces recommendations in the field of economic and social development, as well as on state budget issues. It is also a forum in which binding labour laws are negotiated.
