Hungary - Railway union postpones strike - June 28, 2011

The Railway Workers Union (VSz) has postponed a two-hour strike scheduled for June 29 to a later date, the union's strike committee said on on Tuesday 28 June. The union decided to put off the strike until the Budapest Municipal Labour Court makes a ruling in a case launched to define minimum services. Until a decision on the matter is taken, the strike cannot be legally held, the VSz said. The strike was urged for by train drivers and drivers employed by the Budapest Transport Company (BKV) and of coach company Volán in the southern Transdanubia region, in protest over the abolishment of existing early retirement arrangements.
