Union leader Středula calls on government to start tackling energy crisis

Trade union leader and presidential candidate Josef Středula has called on the Czech government to immediately start addressing the energy crisis.

In an open letter addressed to Prime Minister Petr Fiala, Mr Středula said that due to rising energy prices and the government’s lack of action, uncertainty was growing and could become worse in autumn.

Mr Středula said he had already asked President Miloš Zeman for a meeting, adding that he would also like to discuss the situation with members of the Lower House.
