Czech Republic - Unions call off transport strike - March 4, 2010

The transport unions called off the strike planned for Thursday 4 March, giving parliament time to decide on their demand to cut taxes on non-wage benefits that are already part of work contracts. They did so after the caretaker cabinet and the lower house of parliament gave in to their demand to repeal a tax hike on benefits such as cheap transport fares, pointing at “the positive legislative progress so far” (See also this Collective Bargaining Newsletter Year 3 February 2010).
