Czech Republic unions seeking strike negotiations

Unions are showing their disaffection with government reforms in the Czech Republic.

17 June 2011

Strike negotiations are required in the Czech Republic after the country's transport system was ground to a halt yesterday (July 16th).

According to the Prague Post, 58 per cent of the public are in support of the industrial action, which has been taken over pension, budget and healthcare reforms.

Some 51 per cent have deemed the package of measures as unacceptable, while 16 per cent believe taking to the picket line will make a difference to the consultations.

Lubos Pomajbik, chairman of the Transport Trade Union, said: "These couple hours of inconvenience are worth it to prevent the long-lasting consequences of unjust reforms."

Bohumir Dufek, the head of the Independent Unions' Association, told the paper that 120,000 people were expected to turn out for the demonstration.

Unless union bargaining can reach a resolution between disgruntled bodies and those in power, further action could be planned.

Individuals have also taken to the streets to voice their dissatisfaction with the government's austerity measures in Greece.
