Trade unions representing public transportation drivers and workers are calling for a nationwide strike on Monday, September 9, if the government fails to make meaningful progress on meeting their demands. Drivers are asking for an increase in salaries, as well as better physical protection at work. According to the union, drivers frequently suffer from physical and verbal abuse. The strike also coincides with the first day of school. Public transport disruptions are anticipated in major cities throughout the country, including the capital Zagreb, if the strike is held. As of Tuesday, August 27, talks between the unions and the government are ongoing and an agreement may be reached in the coming days.
Individuals in Croatia are advised to monitor developments to the situation, anticipate public transportation disruptions, and plan alternative modes of transportation.
