Trades unions and employers' organisations have refused to take part in the Monday meeting of the National Council for Tripartite Cooperation on the budget update proposals.
In an open letter to caretaker Deputy Prime Minister Yordan Hristoskov, who chairs the Council, the representatives of trade unions and employers' organisations underscore that they have not yet received the documents related to the issues on the agenda of the meeting, namely the updates of the 2014 state budget and of the 2014 budget of the National Health Insurance Fund (NHIF).
They say that they will only take part in the work of the council if they receive the respective documents at least two days in advance, adding that the option of having 3 days at their disposal to hold consultations among their members is preferable.
The meeting of the National Council for Tripartite Cooperation has been scheduled for 3 pm on Monday.
Meanwhile, Bulgaria’s Finance Ministry has vowed to publish the documents several hours ahead of the meeting on Monday morning, according to reports of the Bulgarian National Radio.
