“Both sides decided to pause the negotiations to perform some financial analyses,” head of the Modern Unions Volkswagen (MOV) Zoroslav Smolinský said. “Both sides invited financial specialists who will study the documents to be prepared, and at half past three, we will resume the collective bargaining.”

Smolinský said considerable progress has been made in the negotiations and that he is satisfied with the development.

“We will continue to the next possible point,” VW SK spokesperson Lucia Kovarovič Makayová said. “The agreed documents will be prepared until the next negotiations,” she added. According to TASR, she said that it is still in the best interest of the company to reach an agreement acceptable for both sides as quickly as possible.
