Opposition parties in the municipal council of Budapest on Wednesday jointly proposed that companies owned by the city and their contractors should not apply recent changes to the labour code under which employees could be required to work as much as an annual 400 hours overtime.

Erzsébet Gy. Németh, a councillor of the Democratic Coalition, told a press conference that the opposition is working to “prevent any effect of the slave law” which she said had been adopted “amid scandalous circumstances” in December.

Budapest’s 15,000 municipal employees “won’t be slaves”, Gy. Németh said.

Márta V. Naszályi, representing the Párbeszéd party, said that municipal operations in Budapest “must not rest on the exploitation of employees” and suggested that the city should “set an example” to other municipalities through making without the “slave law”.

  1. It would be a good idea for the opposition parties to aquire the laws of overtime, and read them properly. Either they have never read or they have missinterpreted what the new laws are and what they mean to the work force. The new laws are not “Slave Laws”. Infact they are completely opposite. I believe the work force in Budapest and the whole country should be approached in a referendem to get their oppinions. I feel sure the oppinions will be opposite what the opposition think. Besides, what right have the opposition got to tell local councils not to put the law into affect. Surly this law is determined by the Government, the Unions, Businesses, and more important, the Employees. Get off your high horses oppositions, and go look for a proper job yourselves.
