Streets in Pristina, the capital of Kosovo, are littered with rubbish due to a strike organized by cleaners.
Employees of the Pastrimi (Cleaning) company, which started the strike on Monday, demanded a 70-euro salary increase from 330-euro.
Pristina Mayor Perbarim Rama stated that they had agreed with another cleaning company to collect the rubbish piles in order to prevent the waste from causing an epidemic, and said: “The piles of rubbish are collected and the areas where the rubbish bins are located are washed.” He said.
Despite the strike, the employees have decided to collect rubbish in order to protect the health of the public, according to the statement released by Pastrimi, but they expect their demands for a raise in the coming days.
