The demonstration will take place in front of PPS Group, a company which has a history of disputes with the unions. Participation will not be restricted to PPS employees, however, said KOVO board member Stanislav Lupták, adding that trade unionists from the whole region will attend. Around 700-800 people in all should take part, he predicted. The aim of the protests is to block changes to the current Labour Code.
