Trade unions and employers ask Slovak president to veto strategic enterprises law

Representatives of trade unions and employers at a meeting on November 9 concluded that the usual legislative procedures were not respected in the drafting of the Strategic Enterprises Act, as the law was not discussed by Slovakia's tripartite Economic and Social Council, the TASR newswire reported.

“We'll ask the president (Ivan Gašparovicč) to return this law to parliament for further discussion,” the Trade Union Confederation (KOZ) vice president for economic policy and social partnership, Vladimír Mojš, told TASR following the meeting.

"We view the approval of the law on strategic enterprises in parliament and the fact that no discussion took place in the tripartite setting as a serious breach of social dialogue. And as this concerned such a crucial law that impacts the economic environment in Slovakia, we consider it to be highly inappropriate,” stated vice president of the Slovak Federation of Employers Associations (AZZZ), Rastislav Machunka. He added that the act will have an impact on creditors' rights, which in turn will adversely affect Slovakia's competitiveness. TASR
