Prague: Strike of tram drivers
Tram drivers in Prague are in strike. They struggle for months to have
their wages at the same height as bus drivers and metro drivers. Without
succes. Their employer publicized ?study? which compairs driving tram and
bus. It´s result made tram drivers angry. ?In fact, the result of the
study is degradation of tram drivers to the role of  passengers sitting on
a special place? is stated in the press release of Federation of tram
drivers (tram drivers trade union). The study is saying that tram drivers
have no driving licenses, so they are not drivers. ?Because we are not
drivers, we can´t drive our trams and there will be strike on Monday, 
February 3.? Is also stated in the press release of tram drivers.
Only one tram harbour wasn´t blocked in the early morning on Monday. From
two tram harbours were striking drivers together with some sympatisants
pushed by security guards cooperating with police. Till approximately 7:45
in the morning 3 next harbours were under control of striking people, one
on Zizkov perifery was violently evicted by riot-police. Transportation
company, employee of tram drivers, call lot of part-time drivers to work
to break the strike, but only half of trams were in the streets of Prague
in the morning. The strike should last till midnight, till now is not
clear how it will continue.
