Bulgaria -Railways workers positive on measures -August 7, 2012

The trade union of the Bulgarian railway workers affiliated to the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions (CITUB) has commented in a positive sense on the most recent decision of the Transport Ministry. The union wants to keep the number of the trains and the number of the workers upright. The national privatization agency announced it is cancelling the current privatization procedure of national BDZ state railways company freight unit in order to re-launch it on lower criteria. The agency’s action is a reaction to receiving only one bid in the current privatization round. BDZ national railways has long been making losses and gone through several rounds of dismissals, as reported in previous issues of our newsletter.
