Unions to go on strike on Friday

The unions will fulfil their threats on Friday by holding a one-hour strike, from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m.

Confederation of Trade Unions (KOZ) President Ivan Saktor was not able to estimate how many people would attend, the daily SME reports.

Railway workers, teachers, and health care employees will join the protest. Reportedly, even employees of carmaker Volkswagen and the Košice ironworks intend to join the nationwide protest.

According to Saktor, there is still a chance to negotiate, but the results depend on the government.

Unions call for raising the minimum wage and object to the pension reform.
