The Hungarian Parliament's employment and labor-affairs committee unanimously approved a proposed amendment that would endow the national interest coordination council (OÉT) with consultative rights rather than arbitration rights.
OÉT is a three-party body where the government, employees and employers' associations are represented.
The amendment is based on the Constitutional Court's 2008 decision declaring the OÉT's arbitration rights to be unconstitutional.
According to the proposed amendment, OÉT would retain its arbitration rights with regard to the laws pertaining to employment and labor relations. (MTI – Econews)
