Tesco employees to obstruct business in Hungary

Should currently ongoing wage talks fail, Tesco employees might resort to a unique form of obstruction as a demonstration, József Száling, president of the Retail Employees Trade Union (KASZ) was quoted as saying in Monday's Magyar Nemzet. Workers will fill up stores with empty shopping carts so that customers will not be able to enter stores.
The workforce shortage is currently a huge problem in the retail sector, and could only be alleviated through wage hikes, Száling said in the interview. The trade union will first announce a labor dispute, after which the warning strike can go ahead.

The number of retail workers in Hungary is more than 250,000, but the sector would need at least 20,000 more, according to Száling.
