Machyňa apologised in advance to the public on behalf of the union for any inconvenience which would be caused. "But the Labour Code is such an important legal norm that we need to protest so that the government realises that we don't agree with the substantial changes [that have been proposed]," he said, adding that the proposed amendment of the Labour Code weakens the rights of employees and unions.
