PRAGUE (REUTER) - Ministers and union leaders scheduled fresh talks on Wednesday to end a nationwide strike by Czech railway workers which entered its second day. Two rounds of talks between Czech Transport Minister Martin Riman and union officials on Tuesday failed to break the impasse, and Riman acknowledged the strike may last longer than 48 hours. The Association of Unions of Rail Workers (OSZ) wants the government to implement a long-term plan to overhaul the decrepit railway system. Leaders of the OSZ reported that 75 to 80 percent of railway workers had joined the strike, but management of the railway company said over 60 percent showed up for work and signed a petition against the strike. Most major Czech firms have said a short-term strike will have little effect on their operations, though coal miner Mostecka Uhelna Spolecnost a.s. said it was losing between 15-20 million crowns a day due to the action.
