Hungary - Local civil servants on strike - August 31, 2017

Almost 6,000 civil servants working at local governments went on strike at more than 100 settlements across the country demanding wage raises. The trade union of Hungarian Employees of the Public Sector (MKKSZ) organised the strike to complain that civil servants have not received any wage raises in the past nine years. The strike was called for after negotiations between the representatives of the union and the government failed. The trade union wants a 25% pay rise as a first step in a three-year program.
