European Commission to examine Hungary Labor Code draft

The European Commission will examine whether a draft of Hungary's new Labour Code is in line with European Union law, Lászlo Andor, European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, said after meeting with union leaders in Budapest on Friday.

In a joint statement, the unions said they expressed their concerns about the new code at the meeting.

Unions plan to demonstrate in front of Parliament on September 12, the first day of the autumn session, to protest the Labour Code they say aims to make existence "impossible" for unions.

The government is expected to take a decision on the draft code in the autumn and submit it to Parliament.
