The trade union organisation representing employees of the Prešov public transport company, DPMP, announced a strike set for Tuesday, August 9, the TASR newswire was told by Milan Gáll from the DPMP labour union on August 4.

Employees of the company have been on strike alert since the beginning of this week due to the company management's failure to increase salaries by 10 percent and their proclaimed intention to cancel employee benefits.

"On August 9, we're going on a strike. No buses or trolleybuses will operate between 7:30 and 10:30," said Gáll, adding that approximately 240 out of 300 DPMP employees have given their support to the strike initiative, the SITA newswire reported.

The unions have had two demands since November of last year: a ten-percent increase in wages and preservation of employee benefits and perks.
