Slovak truckers may announce another strike alert

Truckers who are members of the Slovak Road Haulers Association (UNAS) announced that they are re-establishing a strike committee and will prepare a strike alert because of changes that have been made in the rates of electronic toll collection, the TASR newswire reported.

Truckers who are members of the Slovak Road Haulers Association (UNAS) announced that they are re-establishing a strike committee and will prepare a strike alert because of changes that have been made in the rates of electronic toll collection, the TASR newswire reported.

UNAS stated that it is not happy that its demands were disregarded when the rates were being prepared.

“Our requests weren’t accepted or were included only to the smallest possible extent,” said Jaroslav Poláček, the head of UNAS, as quoted by TASR, after an extraordinary session of the association in central Slovakia’s Zvolen.

In February, the truckers decided not to organise a strike in response to problems surrounding the electronic road-toll system after an agreement on cooperation was signed with the Transport Ministry. UNAS decided to stop plans for the strike after the ministry promised to address some of the shortcomings in the toll-collection system by the end of 2011.
