Lidl Slovenia responded

[W]e refute any and all insinuations about the company LIDL Slovenija...allegedly initiating the procedure of ordinary termination for misconduct due to her trade union activities against its employee, Mrs Tjaša Kozole, who is also the President of SDTS – Lidl Slovenia Union. We also refute allegations about LIDL Slovenija... exerting any pressure against other union members. We already held a meeting about the aforementioned matters with the Slovenian Retail Workers’ Union (SDTS) on 12 March 2020... Mrs Tjaša Kozole is indeed the President of SDTS – Lidl Slovenia Union, but does not enjoy, due to her status as union president, any special protection from termination of employment if contractual and other obligations arising from the employment relationship are violated...  It is... not true that Mrs Kozole found out about the procedure of ordinary termination for misconduct from the media on 3 March 2020. Mrs Kozole accepted the written notification preceding ordinary termination for misconduct on 17 March 2020... Unfortunately, we cannot avoid the conclusion that Mrs Kozole has been abusing the SDTS - Lidl Slovenia Union and her status as union president solely for her private purposes... Sadly, Mrs Kozole has also been abusing the Slovenian Retail Workers’ Union to protect her private interests... Mrs Kozole has, unfortunately, been pursuing a very aggressive campaign against LIDL Slovenija in the media... We will not and must not succumb to such pressures...
