Unions announce partial blockade of roads for Nov 4
The Liga unions association plans partial blockades of about a hundred stretches of road around Hungary on November 4 to protest the new labor code, Liga chairman István Gaskó said at a press conference on Friday.
Liga is demanding meaningful talks on changes to the labor code, the creation of a trilateral forum in the private sector and the restructuring of the pension system, Gaskó said.
Hungary's government on Wednesday approved a draft of the new labor code.
