"I bring to your notice that if within 30 calendar days from the date of the proposal publication employers, who did not participate in the agreement fail to submit to the Ministry of Labour and Social Protection RB a reasoned written refusal to join the agreement in accordance with the applicable procedure, the agreement shall be deemed extended to these employers from the date of publication of this proposal. This refusal must be accompanied by the employer’s consultation protocol with an elected body that represents the interests of employees of the given company", it is said in the minister’s statement.
