Public Transport Drivers Not Backing Down from Sofia Strike
"We still don't know exactly what changes the government offers and we won't know it until they accept them and make them public," Pavel Hristov, head of the strike committee said. "We continue to wait for our demands to be met, so we won't call off the strike."
Hristov talked to private bTV channel, saying that Vice Prime Minister Daniel Valchev's comment that a tram driver shouldn't earn more than a teacher was cynicism.
Sofia's Deputy mayor in charge of transport Velizar Stoilov believes that a deal between the government, municipality and transport workers could still be worked out before Tuesday.
Transport workers demand a raise in their paycheck of BGN 250 per month.
