Rights removed from Hungarian social partners25th of November 2011
With effect from January 1 2012 the Hungarian government will no longer have to seek agreement from employers and trade unions before setting the national minimum wage.
Then the tripartite interest reconciliation system will be replaced by a new body - the National Economic and Social Council (NGTT). The NGTT will include representatives of employers, workers and chambers of commerce but will have no decision-making rights, only the right to draft proposals to the government.
In effect the government alone will from now on decide on wage and employment-related regulations.
