Buses strike for WDS


As we go to press OUR DOGS has heard of a bus strike in Stockholm, Sweden the venue for the World Dog Show. Apparently this will affect a quarter of a million bus travellers this week. As a result, bus traffic in Stockholm could come to a complete standstill from the 1st July, as the drivers’ union have declared a strike over pay rises.

Up to 6 000 drivers are expected to walk out, after the union rejected a proposed pay deal. If no new deal is reached soon, then the strike is expected to spread to other parts of the country later in July.

Exhibitors and visitors to the WDS beware…..its not just the UK where strikes occur!
