Strike Causing Service Disruptions

Ljubljana, 27 September - The start of a public sector strike Monday involving an estimated 80,000 workers caused service disruptions in Slovenia, but no major problems have so far been reported bar longer waiting lines on border crossings with Croatia. Employees are protesting against the suspension of agreed pay rises. The government and unions plan to meet on Tuesday.
