Rail union suspends strike


The Trade Union of Railway Workers, one of ten unions at the national railways operator, said that significant headway was made in talks today.

The apparent breakthrough comes a week after the first strike was staged at the Zalog marshalling yard near Ljubljana. The strike did not have a significant effect on rail transport, having been planned in advance.

That same day, the remaining trade unions signed an annex to the collective labour agreement.

The union demanded a 10% pay rise and equal treatment of all workers. It also said that some of the staff were overworked and could hardly take breaks during working hours or vacation time.

The union claims to be the largest, representing more than 2,000 of the 7,500 staff employed at the company.
