Air traffic controllers in Romania plan to hold a two-hour warning strike on Wednesday.

The strike will be held between 11:00 and 13:00 on Wednesday.

Talks between the air traffic controllers’ union and the management of Romania’s Air Traffic Services Administration (ROMATSA) on a new collective labor agreement collapsed on Monday, according to local news portal

The negotiations on a new collective labor agreement have dragged on for over two months.

The previous agreement expired on June 1, 2015.

A trade union leader declared that no agreement had been reached on the demands of flight controllers, adding that the CEO of the company had even issued a back-dated order to reduce salaries.

ROMATSA has made clear it will cover 1/3 of the air traffic during the period of the strike on Wednesday.

The strike is expected to create chaos in air traffic.

Trade union representatives say that a general strike is not out of the question.
