Trolleybus Drivers have Wildcat Strike in Kiev

This morning trolleybus drivers went on strike in Ukraine.

About 100 drivers went on strike this morning. Their union does not support the protest and considers the strike illegal. The management of the depot forced some drivers from the second and weekend shifts to come in to work, where the found they were to act as strike breakers.

The drivers went on strike because they are owed back pay and are demanding immediate payment. They also protested against the liquidation of bonuses and deteriorating work conditions.

As a result of the reaction of the existing union, workers from the strike decided to form a new, independent one.
