Strike terminated
The Metrorex employees’ strike was terminated today after the Sector 6 Court of Law had declared it illegal. This decision was based on the fact that the employees did not provide the required one third of their activity, which would have meant, in the eyes of the Metrorex management, a metro out of three taking its normal route.

The employees have presented previous agreement that stated that, in case of strike, they had do choose between one third of the working hours and one third of the route length. They decided to go for the first choice to avoid discriminating routes. More details here, again, Romanian only.

So the strike is over for now, as the employees can appeal in 10 days. I have to admit, as much as I was troubled by this strike, I hoped for a more favorable closure for the employees.

    I was hoping for a happier ending for the employees too.:(

    Don't understand why they have to end the strike though?Can't they continue but with the required one third of activity?

    Lou, I don't know the exact procedure. From what I heard on the radio, they first have to appeal the decision. They cannot continue a strike that has been declared illegal, even if they change their plan. But they can start again!

    Glad to hear that ,I guess that now you will find public transportations less crowded and you will arrive in time at your destinations!

    Oh, yeah, now it's heaven! :)

    I'm sorry you and everyone else had to go through such an ordeal. Good public transportation is so essential. So is valuing employees.

    Ture, DCS, they are both very important. I feel it was all for nothing though. We went through all that madness and there was nothing gained. It's sad, actually.

    Commenting the subway employees' strike in a 2.5 million people city with some camel drivers through the sands of Asian deserts. Isn't it funny? For real!...

    What do you know... Subway strike... I guess they want better salaries. And I don't blame them.

    LOL, ignorance is sometimes a pain, isn't it...You think Bucharest is such a great city compared to Cairo, Alexandria or Dubai? God, you are dead wrong, get some info first, those cities are larger, they have more inhabitants and, oh, quite heavy traffic. I bet you were actually thinking about trips to pyramides with the camels, right?

    Irina, no one really blames them. But it appears it was pointless anyway...

    Hey, smart blogger! The number of the individuals does not make 'the civilization'. For instance, India has much more inhabitants than the whole Europe... and a longer history!

  • At 11/20/2005 8:31 PM, Blogger Alina said…

    Your point LOL being? Nor does the fact that you don't have a desert or a camel nearby...Did you ever visit Cairo, or Dubai? Did you ever hear about Burj al Arab???

  • At 11/21/2005 7:17 PM, Anonymous lol said…

    Let's get real: have you ever heard of El Zorab?! That's more : for Allah's sake (!) who the heck designed Burj al Arab?

  • At 11/22/2005 9:23 AM, Blogger Alina said…

    What El Zorab are you referring to? The poem that makes kids cry? Does it matter who desined it? You should ask yourself who had the money to build it and why did they think it would only be profitable in the Arab world...BTW, this is way besides the poing

    I see... Poing, poing, poing... You're right... the money is the most important thing in Universe. If there's not money, there's nothing!... Am I right?! Also the MONEY built other architectural wonders (Hindu style...) not too far away from the Capital City of a little funny country on the map of Europe. These are even more... spectacular than the oil stinking hotel and they are much closer to you for a visit.

    Lol, you are actually becoming funny...There is no way to judge the level of civilization from only one point of view...I know it, it seems you don't! Money, number of people, level of life, history, infrastructure, all these...Do you think Romanian would be ahead of Dubai? Or Cairo?

  • At 11/22/2005 6:47 PM, Blogger Alina said…

    No that I really feel like being bitchy, "Commenting the subway employees' strike in a 2.5 million people city with some camel drivers through the sands of Asian deserts. Isn't it funny? For real!... " You do have a slight idea of Geography? Some people I was talking to on this are actually from Morocco, which is in...hmmm, Africa? My point - you are superficial, know nothing about them, yet you have no problem calling them camel drivers. So much for you being civilized, at all...
