  • Unions continue protests against government policy

They have organised: a symbolic blockade of the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs and the Family; a three-day national rail strike (SK0306101F [2]); a blockade of borders and motorways; and a 12-hour warning strike by teachers in June, which closed the majority of state schools.
