Leaders of the Prague transport authority’s trade unions walked out of talks with city officials on Wednesday, increasing the chances of a strike in the coming days. Union leaders said Prague City Hall had failed to answer their demands. However, they called for another meeting with the authorities on Thursday before a decision on the strike is made. The news website lidovky.cz reported that the strike is likely to begin on Wednesday, November 18.
The Prague transport authority’s trade unions demanded, among other things, that the city covers the company’s operational loss of 1.9 billion crowns, or more than 112 million US dollars. However, city officials only agreed on Tuesday to provide the company with 900 million crowns.
