Image Labour unions representing public sector workers only proclaimed 2,339 strikes in 2013 according to figures published on Tuesday by the government commission overseeing strikes in essential services on Tuesday.

This was the equivalent of 666 days of strikes or almost two strikes a day, the watchdog said. The sectors most affected by strikes were transportation, garbage collection, health and justice. The number was unchanged with respect to the previous year

In 2013 the commission of guarantee issued fines amounting to a paltry 113,700 euros mostly to unions (but also to employers) for failing to guarantee minimum essential services during strikes. In 2012 the strike watchdog issued fines to the tune of 365,000 euros.
