Protestors block roads in Pécs, Győr

Union activists protesting against the overtime bill closed one lane of roads in Győr and Pécs on Monday, Steel Workers Union vice-president Zoltán László told Klubrádió.

The activists were continuing their protest that began in Veszprém on Friday.

László said the protestors do not want to inconvenience ordinary people but want to show that they do not accept the labour bill nor that no substantive consultations were held.

He said they will continue their protest if the bill is passed.
