Croatia -Transport strike called off as HZ promises to intensify social dialogue -May 17, 2013

On 8 May, the Engine Drivers' Union stated that it had planned a warning strike on 15 May to draw attention to ‘the catastrophic situation’ in the national railways (HZ) passenger, transport and cargo companies, while at the same time the Railway Workers' Union would stage a protest rally outside the government offices in St Mark's Square. All HZ trains would be halted for two hours to bring the attention of the Transport and infrastructure Minister to the risks to transport safety, the lack of social dialogue, failure to address the accumulated problems in both companies, failed business decisions, and violations of workers' rights, the two unions said in a joint statement. After intervention from the ministry, trade unions and HZ reached an agreement over intensification of the social dialogue and complete involvement of the unions in the restructuring process. The unions agreed to call of the warning strike and any other strikes in the upcoming year, with the exception of those that are directly related to a possible new collective agreement.
