Spies on Strike: Spooks in Slovenia Demand Higher Wages

Thursday, 07 December 2017 09:38 AM

LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (AP) — Employees at Slovenia's state intelligence agency have gone on strike, demanding higher wages and better working conditions.

Slovenia's Public Administration Minister Boris Koprivnikar on Thursday described the move as "surprising and unique." He says Slovenia's spies are required by law to ensure the basic functioning of the agency to protect national security.

Local media say the strike started Wednesday with employees of the Slovene Security and Intelligence Agency, or SOVA, complaining they are understaffed and not paid enough.

No other details about the strike, including how many employees were affected, were immediately known.
