Government and employers sign memorandum on cooperation

The Slovak Government and employers confirmed on Wednesday, March 12, that they will cooperate to tackle the effects of the global economic crisis by signing a memorandum on cooperation. The document was signed by Prime Minister Robert Fico, by the chairman of the Republic Union of Employers (RUZ), Marián Jusko, by the president of the Association of Employer Unions and Organisations (AZZZ), Tomáš Malatinský, and by Klub 500 chairman Vladimír Soták, according to the TASR newswire. Fico emphasised that the government has committed itself in the memorandum not to adopt laws during the crisis that would inappropriately burden employers with financial, regulatory or administrative costs above the level laid out in current legislation. His priority is to create the conditions necessary for maintaining employment, TASR wrote. The employers committed themselves in the memorandum to not misuse the crisis to worsen the working conditions of employees. The signatories will also carry out measures aimed at maintaining social peace. Malatinský stressed that employers are interested in maintaining employment as well. They especially want to hold on to professionals because if they lose them this could have fatal consequences when the economy recovers.

Jusko views the main importance of the memorandum as a formal legislative framework for further dialogue to find the most efficient anti-crisis measures. According to Soták, the signing of the memorandum represents a crowning of good communication between the government and employers that began in October last year. TASR
