The two groups are currently negotiating an amendment to the current collective agreement. Since no deal has been made, the local trade unions decided to declare a strike alert, the Korzár regional daily reported.

“We are proceeding in compliance with the law on collective negotiation – a strike alert is not a strike, but a demonstration of our preparedness to go on one, if necessary,” said Juraj Varga from the OZ KOVO trade unions organisation, as quoted by Korzár.

The negotiations will now be attended by a mediator, he added.
