Public transport halted in Amsterdam on third day of strikes

Public transport workers in Amsterdam went on strike during Friday’s rush hour in the third day of industrial action in protest at government plans to cut spending on buses and trams by €120m.

Bus, tram and metro services will be back to normal around 10.00 hours, the public transport company GVB said.
The strikers are also opposed to government plans to force Amsterdam, The Hague and Rotterdam to put their public transport services out to tender.
