Index – Economy – The Solidarity Bus Transport Union announced a two-day strike

SZAKSZ announced at its conciliation meeting on Friday that it is organizing a two-day work stoppage affecting the entire workforce in order to accelerate the 2024 wage negotiations in Volánbusz, the union announced on its website.

The strike was taken into account because Volánbusz was unable to make an offer to employees on Friday due to the lack of the owner’s permit to demand SZAKSZ for a 25 percent wage improvement.

At the same time, top managers representing Volánbusz and MÁV Zrt promised that they would make every effort to reach an agreement by January 20, 2024, and the wage improvement would be implemented on January 1, 2024, the union announced.

In its statement sent to MTI on Friday, Volánbusz Zrt emphasized that, as a responsible employer, it is in the company’s interest and interest to conclude an agreement on wage improvement next year. They stressed that they are committed to completing wage negotiations next year by January 20, 2024 at the latest, and concluding a wage agreement with rights protection organizations.

SZAKSZ reported on its website that representatives of Volánbusz and SZAKSZ had agreed that pre-strike conciliation negotiations would continue on November 27 on the topic of ensuring adequate service.

SZAKSZ also announced that while bus drivers will participate in the strike on both days, maintenance workers may stop working on December 11, with the first shift being from 8am to 11am, and the second shift from 2pm to 5pm. On the same day, between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m., workers in white-collar jobs can join the strike call, the Solidarity Bus Transport Union announced on its website.
