City transport workers in Ostrava on Monday reached a deal with the company management on increasing their salaries, and will end their six-day strike. Under the agreement, salaries of bus drivers and office workers will grow by 5 percent next year, rather than 8 percent as originally demanded by the trade unions. Manual workers’ salaries will increase by 6 percent in 2012. The strike, which began last week Sunday, is set to end on Monday midnight. The director of the city-owned firm estimated the costs of the strike at around 70 million crowns.
