This report presents the Slovak case study prepared as a part of the research project ARTUS-CEE, financed by the DG Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion of the European Commission under the agreement No. VP/2019/0070.

In the line with the research goals of the ARTUS-CEE project, the main objective of this report is to analyse whether Slovak trade unions are able to undertake effective actions towards upwards convergence of social standards in the EU in the context of different industrial relations systems among the EU member states and weak EU-level industrial relations in Central and Eastern European countries (CEE). The analysis relies on an influential article by Slawomir Adamczyk who, supported by others, claims that there are two worlds within the ETUC family, reflecting different involvement and strategies of trade unions from CEE and so-called old Member States in the EU-level structures (Adamczyk 2018; Czarzasty and Mrozowicki 2018).
