The Ministry of Labor and Social Policy has another week to draft a legal solution that would make Sunday a non-working day. For the time being, the government department refrains from sharing details on how exactly the law would be implemented, i.e. which services will remain “on duty”, because consultations are underway with stakeholders, primarily workers and employers.
The positions of both sides are already publicly known. The largest union is pushing Sunday to become a non-working day because the current legal provision has been abused. Employers, on the other hand, say that on Sunday there is a significant turnover in the economy that the country must not lose, especially the income from weekend tourists from neighboring countries.
