Trade unions announced on Wednesday, July 13, that they would consider leaving the social dialogue with the Labour Ministry and representatives of employers (also known as the tripartite) in response to the Labour Code amendment approved by parliament earlier in the day.

Trade unions announced on Wednesday, July 13, that they would consider leaving the social dialogue with the Labour Ministry and representatives of employers (also known as the tripartite) in response to the Labour Code amendment approved by parliament earlier in the day.

"I'll propose leaving the tripartite, interrupting the social dialogue, because this is seriously trampling on the social dialogue," said KOVO trade union boss Emil Machyňa, as quoted by the TASR newswire. He added that the trade unions may organise activities to apply pressure in the autumn, in September at the earliest. Such protests could not be prevented any more, Machyňa said, as parliament had approved a Labour Code that "tramples on employees' rights".
