Today (November 28) the Austrian Railways are facing a one-day strike. The reason is that the trade unions could not agree with the management of ÖBB to raise the level of wages for the company’s employees. Railway Supply magazine writes about this with reference to RailTarget.


The strike concerns all trains in Austria, as well as cross-border traffic. Railways of the Slovak Republic (ŽSR) have already published on their website that there may be restrictions on train travel to and within Austria.

The Austrian railways ÖBB urged passengers to cancel all non-essential travel or find alternative transport. They also said there would be another round of negotiations with union representatives to prevent a strike. “At the same time, we warn passengers that before, during and even after the strike, there may be significant restrictions, cancellations and delays of trains.”

According to them, there may also be disruptions in the operation of direct transportation on the ÖBB network, which may also affect foreign rail carriers.
