Czech Republic - Public sector strike planned - November 25, 2010

Public sector unions are planning a one-day strike on 8 December in protest at the government plans to cut public sector pay by 10%. The unions argue that the cut is unacceptable and will be compounded by other cuts to social provision proposed by the government. They also argue that the cuts will have negative impact on the quality of public services. The CMKOZ confederation will organise rallies in the 14 regional capitals in support of the public sector unions. Police officers and firefighters who are banned from striking by law will join the rallies.
