– We are faced with a new opening – said Andrzej Malinowski, President of Employers of Poland, as he welcomed representatives of Employers’ of Poland regional partners. The main topics of discussion were the Social Dialog Council and opportunities provided by the new 2014-2010 financial perspective.
He emphasized that both the Council and the new perspective create not only new opportunities, but new challenges as well. – We can safely call the Social Dialog Council the fruit of our labour, but the key role of President Bronisław Komorowski is not to be underestimated – he stressed. Malinowski added that if it had not been for the President’s determination, the act could not have been passed in its current form. The act comes into force on September 11th. For the Council to start working in early October, each social partner has to present candidates for members – Employers of Poland have six places in the institution. Partners also have to decide who will be the first chairman. Labour law and coalition law will be among the priorities for the first months. – It is in the Council that we will battle for taxes, as the actions of the Ministry of Finance are a declaration of war – said the President of Employers of Poland.
