Czech school trade unions on Friday went on “strike alert” over further spending cuts planned for this year by the Finance Ministry. Under the new austerity measures, regional schools could lose up to 3.4 billion crowns which would mean a drop in salaries by 1,200 crowns per employee, the head of the trade union František Dobšík said. The unions warned that they will go on strike if the government does not reconsider its plans.
