[Update] All RATB buses will be in service Tuesday, and 50% of the trolley coaches and trams will run during the day, as many of the employees won’t take part in the protest in solidarity with the public sector workers affected by the austerity measures.

Bus routes won’t be affected by June 1 strike

“If the Government decision from May 12 that envisages a 25% cut in public wages doesn’t change, we will take the necessary measures to begin the general strike. Firstly, on June 1, we will stage a protest in solidarity with the public sector workers between 4:00 and 16:00, and if the decision still remains unchanged, we will go on a general strike. Subway, trolley coaches and trams will be without service on June 1 in the 4:00 – 16:00 interval. Probably a part of the bus drivers are affected by these measures, but they will make the decision to take part in the strike on their own”, said Ion Radoi.

Over one million public sector workers will stage a protest on May 31 and June 1, over the anti-crisis measures announced by the Government.
