Slovenia - Compromise sought over energy restructuring - October 13, 2010

The SDE energy sector union has called off a strike that was announced for Tuesday 12 October in order to put pressure on the government in negotiations over restructuring of the electricity distribution sector. It was agreed with Prime Minister Bourt Pahor that a compromise solution would be found as soon as possible. Trade union representative Franc Dolar and Economy Minister Darja Radic told the press that an active dialogue would be established between unions and government. In the restructuring plan the five majority state-owned distributors would be split into market and network divisions, with the market divisions to be sold to major energy traders or producers.
