Slovenia - Police officers on strike over inadequate equipment - December 31, 2015

Police officers are on strike over the implementation of an agreement signed in July 2013, as reported in our newsletter. The agreement included commitments to replace old materials and equipment, like cars, to guarantee police officers can do their jobs safely. On 10 December, police officers will retire old cars by themselves, refusing to drive cars with too many years or kilometres on them. Despite union statements to the contrary, the strike over equipment is interpreted as an escalation of simultaneous strike action over wages, which started on 18 November. Police officers are demanding a 35% wage increase in the new collective agreement, which is currently being negotiated.
