Trade unions have called a one-day strike on June 24, in protest against the government’s reforms. The Bohemian and Moravian Trade Union Confederation, an umbrella organization comprising some 540,000 members, has been on a strike alert since March and says there is clearly no will on the part of government representatives to deal with the problems outlined. Trade unions are particularly critical of effected reforms in the education and health sectors as well as the government’s plan to postpone the retirement age in the Czech Republic to 65.
