Slovakia - Train engineers on strike - May 26, 2011

The Federation of Slovak Train Engineers (FSSR) was set to hold a one-hour strike on 27 May. A FSSR spokesperson said that the aim of the strike is to make clear the union’s dissatisfaction with the way the revitalisation of rail companies is carried out. However, the passenger railway company Železničná Spoločnosť Slovensko (ZSSK) spoke out against the action and employees of the railway infrastructure operator Železnice Slovenskej Republiky (ŽSR) were not participating. That company and representatives of the Trade Union Association of Train Dispatchers and Traffic Controllers struck a deal after talks lasting for several hours, according to ŽSR spokesperson Martina Pavlíková.
