By 2 December 2019

ZAGREB, December 2, 2019 - The Croatian government on Sunday evening stated that the negotiations with the striking unions of education-sector employees would continue on Monday, which was why Prime Minister Andrej Plenković cancelled his attendance at a UN summit meeting in Madrid.

One of the leaders of the striking unions, Branimir Mihalinec, said after a six -hour-long round of the negotiations on Sunday that the talks would go on Monday, as well as the 36-day-long industrial action.

"We have concluded that we still need some time for talks and we will continue negotiating tomorrow. We expect the conclusion (of the negotiations) tomorrow," the unionist said in his brief comment on Sunday's meeting in Government House.

"We have also agreed that we will not give statements to the press," Mhalinec said urging reporters not to ask any more questions.

Prime Minister Andrej Plenković was to have attended the opening of COP25 climate summit.
