The OZ KOVO Kia union has announced a strike alert after the management of the Korean carmaker and trade unionists failed to come to an agreement over wages.

Trade union boss Miroslav Chládek explained for the Hospodárske noviny economic daily that people are prepared to express solidarity and support for their negotiators. The management of Kia Motors Slovakia said, through company spokesperson Jozef Bačé, that starting May 13, each employee can accept the offer of a monthly pay hike of €25, which is a 3.2 percent increase on average, and a bonus of €628 to be paid in August. Chládek added that if no agreement is reached through negotiations, the union is prepared to take further steps. Unionists say that the company should, apart from increasing the base salary, also pay bonuses that are in proportion with the company’s profits.
