Prague Public Transport Company saves 3 million crowns due to transport strike

According to its own estimates, the Prague Public Transport Company saved roughly three million Czech crowns due to the transport strike that hit the capital last week on Thursday. Most of it was generated by the fact that employees who joined the strike were not paid the full wage for that day, which lead to savings of 4.3 million Czech crowns. The company’s general director, Martin Dvořák, said that he saw this as a great loss rather than a gain, since the mission of the company was to ensure public transportation. Some 3280 employees in Prague participated in the nationwide transport strike, and for the first time in its history, the Prague metro did not run.
