The continuing strike of Slovak railway workers is causing losses of hundreds of millions of crowns to industries dependent on rail transport, with no agreement between the rail unions and transport ministry yet in sight.
Rail workers began an indefinite strike 31 January to protest planned service cuts. Transport Minister Pavol Prokopovic said February 2 that if no agreement is reached soon, the current situation may lead to the collapse of the state-run rail companies.
