Sweden -Stockholm bus drivers’ strike disrupts municipal traffic -June 19, 2013

Over 900 bus drivers have responded to a strike call by municipal unions Kommunal after turning down a mediator’s bid. Kommunal and the municipality are in a row over pay, working conditions and break times of drivers in the capital. Another 1400 drivers are expected to go on strike from 29 June onwards. The strike has become a major issue of debate after a conservative students union condemned the strike and organised free buses to “compensate for the irresponsible behaviour”.
