Slovenia -Police strikes loom as talks fail to yield results -July 31, 2013

Police unions have ended strike actions after their union signed an agreement with the government guaranteeing that budget funds for their work will not be reduced and that there will be no redundancies. As reported in the January 2013 newsletter, the police unions have been at odds with the government since the beginning of the year, when officers went on strike claiming the government have failed to fulfil promises made in May 2012. Police unions were demanding the implementation of the pay agreements from May 2012, which ended a strike over pay cuts set off in April 2012. The unions furthermore demanded a 10% pay increase for the current period.
