Re: Strike costs railways Sk150 million, Business briefs, Feb 17 - 23, Vol 9, No 6

Could anyone explain exactly what was supposedly illegal about the strike? And maybe even what exactly were the "above-standard" rights that railway workers were supposed to have gotten over the last few years? And to that, what are the special privileges that the unions are supposed to have been enjoying? I have seen these phrases thrown about in hundreds of newspaper articles, but I have never heard them explained.
