  • Trade unions outline priorities for next government term

    Belgium is a constitutional monarchy with parliamentary rule based on proportional representation. The government, elected by the legislature, is usually a coalition combining different parties that have to agree on a general political programme. An ‘informateur’, traditionally appointed by the King, has to identify the potential coalition. He is expected to meet representatives of all political parties, social partners (workers’ and employers’ representatives), civil society and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and work out common ground for a viable political programme.
  • Textile workers strike against low wages

    Despite several trade union protests, there had been no strikes in Slovakia for more than three years (*SK0704019I* [1]). Recently, a labour dispute emerged in two textile companies, Kali Agro and Slo.vi in Hencovce, which are owned by the Italian hosiery manufacturer VMC Vignoni [2]. The Slovakian companies were established in 2009, with the state giving VMC Vignoni aid for creating new jobs, to cover 50% of employee wage costs. According to available data, the average gross wage of employees was €330. The employees complained about low wages and inconvenient working conditions and, during bargaining rounds for a new collective agreement, trade unionists demanded a 15% wage increase. Management did not consider the demand legitimate and refused the raise. According to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of both companies, Ondrej Milčo, the employees did not respect economic reality and were not able to justify their demand for such a large increase. He maintained that the wages in these companies reflected the situation in the region. Nevertheless, management proposed to increase employee wages by 10%.
