GZS urges new govt to form social pact
The other four employer organisations distanced themselves from the GZS's appeal on Wednesday, saying they did not say "the government should form a new social pact".
Nevertheless, the OZS chamber of small business, Chamber of Commerce, Employer Association and Association of Craftsmen and Entrepreneurs reiterated their view that "there is no prosperity without business".
At yesterday's news conference, they also urged the new government to change the coalition agreement and produce a new strategy for more prosperity for all.
Several business officials also criticised the opposition Left, which supports the Marjan Šarec government, saying its power was considerable despite its political status.
Meanwhile, GZS president Boštjan Gorjup said the coalition agreement "is not very specific when it comes to improving the business environment, but very specific when it comes to improving the standard of living, which will require major tax increases".
This is why "all goals should be studied in a broader context of financial sustainability and checked to see how they influence the economy", he said.
Gorjup urged the coalition partners to sit down with social partners to examine individual measures, see what the priorities are and set a timetable for their implementation.
