Social security provider Sociálna Poisťovna (SP) remains without a director after government officials blocked the election of Michal Nemec, currently director of supplementary pension insurance company Tatry-Sympatia, to the post.
Labour Minister Ľudovit Kaník said the cabinet needed more time to introduce its candidate.
The unions are extremely irritated that the government ignored the Thursday meeting of the ST board of trustees.
Peter Gajdoš, vice president of the Trade Unions Confederation (KOZ), told the daily SME that if government representatives were present, the board could have elected Nemec to the post.
He argues that the cabinet has had enough time to propose its candidate since Miroslav Knitl was recalled from the post in early July.
