Communists support unionists

MORE than 3000 trade union members gathered in front of the parliament on Tuesday, to protest against the social and economic policies of the government.

All of the opposition Communist Party (KSS) deputies, along with Smer leader Robert Fico, and, Movement for a Democratic Slovakia's Ivan Jarjabka, supported the protesters.

The unionists are demanding that the government continue a dialogue with them, and that the minimum monthly wage be elevated to Sk8,100 (€194) from Sk5,560 (€133).

Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) Vice-President Eugen Škultéty claims that it would be the government's fault if the collective agreement for 2004 were not signed. The agreement would secure a 7-percent wage increase in the public sector.
