Labour Ministry planning centre to support social dialogue

The Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and Family is preparing to establish a centre to facilitate so-called ‘social dialogue’ – dialogue between the government, employers and unions. The ministry’s state secretary, Emília Kršíková, announced the plan at a press conference on Monday, May 26, following a meeting of social partners at the Economic and Social Council of the Slovak Republic. The centre is intended to provide professional and administrative support for social dialogue at all levels, Kršíková explained. It will provide an expert basis for the Economic and Social Council, the SITA newswire wrote. The facility will also back the establishment of further social partnerships in additional sectors, since not all sectors have such representation. Kršíková added that the centre will also provide a professional basis for collective bargaining and will elaborate various analyses to back up bargaining among social partners.

Finances from the EU, drawn within the Employment and Social Inclusion Operational Programme, are to be used for the establishment of the centre. Kršíková added that the centre is to be a non-profit organisation, standing outside government structures. Detailed plans for the centre are to be submitted by late June. The state secretary said that the centre should be established by the end of this year, or at the beginning of 2009. SITA
