NEWS BRIEFS

New employers' union created in split

EMPLOYERS unhappy with the work of the current Slovak Association of Employers' Federations (AZZZ) created a new professional union, the National Union of Employers (RÚZ), on March 30, the private news agency SITA wrote.

The new group wants to ask the government "to accept us as a social partner" at tripartite meetings, RÚZ president Anton Jura said.

Jura said that the RÚZ was born out of the feelings of disapproval its members have towards the AZZZ leadership.

The RÚZ will also request representation in public service institutions and international organisations.

The RÚZ includes 18 employers' federations and eight individual members, which altogether employ 350,000 workers in industry, trade, and services.
