Slovenian police officers on Monday went on a warning strike, which was why the entrance of trucks and cargo vehicles travelling from Croatia to Slovenia took more time than usual at border crossings, the Slovenian traffic information service provider reported on Monday morning.
The token strike lasted between 8am and noon, affecting the traffic flow at the border crossings Bregana/Obrezje and Gruskovje/Macelj.
The strike was conducted in the form of the work-to-rule action only at the border crossings.
A police trade union organised the industrial action as it was dissatisfied with the failure of the government to deliver on its promises it had given two years ago about higher wages for the law enforcement staff.
The government claims it has fulfilled its commitments and underlines that police officers' monthly wages have increased by more than 15% in the meantime.
