Law on tripartite could be abolished

JUSTICE Minister Daniel Lipšic appealed to politicians to consider abolishing the law on tripartite that has been effective in Slovakia since 1999.

According to Lipšic and some other cabinet ministers, the labour unions that are part of the tripartite, along with the cabinet and the representatives of employers, misuse the law for their political goals and for unnecessary delays of legislation.

The tripartite law requires the cabinet to consult prepared laws with the labour unions and employers.

The head of the unions, Ivan Saktor, said to the Slovak daily SME that he did not believe that MPs would abolish the law, while Michal Ľach, president of the employers association, said that a new model of tripartite functioning could be introduced.
