Labour unions plan more anti-government protests


Czech labour unions on Wednesday threatened to undertake further protest actions against the government’s reform plans. Union leaders said a new round of protests would be more radical than that staged in Prague last Saturday when around 100,000 people marched through the capital demanding the centre-right government to step down. The head of the unions’ association, Jaroslav Zavadil said the protests would “hurt”, adding that union leaders would no longer attend meetings with the government.
