Prime Minister Fischer also said on Sunday that he planned to hold talks with the country’s union leaders on new rules regarding the taxation of benefits. Transport unions in particular are opposed to the change and have not ruled out strike action. Mr Fischer said the only way to get around the impasse was to send the relevant legislation back to the lower house. He also said he would discuss the matter with the minister of finance, Eduard Janota.
