The new organ is intended to facilitate agreements on labour issues. Now everything is in the hands of the Sejm.
– The draft passed by the Council of Ministers was unique from the very start. It’s value lies first and foremost in its being elaborated in a transparent autonomous dialog, conducted between employers’ associations and trade unions. It was then consulted with the government, which means that a broad consensus was reached. It is good that it has been passed now. I hope that further works will proceed on a quick legislative path and the Council can meet for the first time after the holiday season. There will be many topics to discuss: the shape of the pension system, minimum wage or the broadening of opportunities for establishing and joining trade unions – says Director of the Legislation Monitoring Centre of Employers of Poland Arkadiusz Pączka.
