Austria -Wage dumping at state railway? -November 15, 2012

After a serious accident in South Tyrol resulting in a ban on the state railway ÖBB carriages going into Italy a report revealed that the state railway system could be facing a multi-million pound bill if Italian officials are correct, and that many of its goods wagons have got faulty wheels thanks to outsourcing in Eastern Europe. Trade unionists say that while the future of the ÖBB factory in Salzburg has been put under threat because of the move to switch work to Slovakia – the accident proves it was the wrong decision and they accused management of wage dumping.
