The meeting that was planned between the Slovak Democratic and Christian Union Party (SDKÚ-DS) and the Trade Unions Confederation (KOZ) for November 3 did not take place, the SITA newswire wrote.
The meeting was supposed to be about the party's proposal for a package of protective measures aimed at easing the impact of the worldwide financial crisis. On October 29, the KOZ confirmed its attendance, but it later wrote in a press release that it resolutely rejects the party’s proposals.
"KOZ leadership won’t budge an inch about topics that are in sharp contradiction to the trade unions' interests," the KOZ wrote.
The unions added that they will not even accept further invitations for talks. SITA
