Unions, Govt Try to Win Over Top Court on Pension Reform

Ljubljana, 15 February - The Constitutional Court heard cases for and against a referendum on the pension reform in a public session on Tuesday. The trade unions, which called the referendum, said that banning the vote would curb the right of the people to decide on their future, but the government countered that without the reform the pension purse would go bankrupt.
