PM lashes out at trade union leader

PRIME Minister Mikuláš Dzurinda lashed out at Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) boss Ivan Saktor for interrupting social partnership (tripartite) negotiations with the government. Saktor plans to disrupt the talks until Dzurinda meets with him personally.

Dzurinda claims that Saktor has been abusing the unions for his personal interests, serving his aspirations to become a politician, and meeting personal publicity objectives.

The unions want to discuss issues pertaining to education financing, the income tax bill, and the real estate transfer tax bill.
