Macedonian Train Strike blocks railway traffic


As of Tuesday morning, train drivers have launched a job boycott, resulting in the interruption of passenger and cargo railway traffic, Dusko Cakarovski, a representative of the employees told MIA.

He informs that the passenger trains left for Bitola and Gevgelija in the morning, and the others envisaged by the timetable will not operate until their demand for a 30 to 40 percent increase in the quality compensation is met.

This, as Cakarovski explains, is required by the Collective Agreement for additional work and work with a reduced number of executive staff.
