“Professional firefighters will strike from January 10-12 if they can’t find common ground with the government) by then. Nevertheless, they hope to to put the ‘matter to sleep and act responsibly’ to reach an agreement this month.

The strike committee of the professional firefighting union is expected to announce its position and point out the injustices for the strike, which is expected to begin on Wednesday, January 10, at 6pm, and end on Friday, January 12. They say that it is because of complications in the negotiations, which have lasted more than a half a year, concerning the abolition of salary anomalies and found that neither the government nor particularly their line in the Ministry of Defense is ready to listen to their demands.” (translated from Delo)
