Sofia public transport workers will make up their minds whether to go out on a strike by six o'clock this evening.

The news broke a day after representatives of Sofia's municipality agreed on a BGN 200 rise in salaries but before the municipal council of the capital voted down the proposal for the allotment of the needed BGN 7 M.
