Bus Driver Strike in Bucharest Continues Despite Ruling

The Romanian capital Bucharest was gridlocked for a second day as public transport workers continued to strike despite court rulings that the action was illegal amid a worsening pandemic.

Bus and tram drivers disregarded the court ruling and refused to start work on Friday, prompting citizens to form long queues at the subway at a time when Romania reported the highest number of new Covid-19 cases since the start of the pandemic. Prices on car-sharing applications have also surged significantly.
