Employees of Letecké opravovne Trenčín (LOTN) ended the strike emergency after more than a year. This was caused by a change in the company’s management, a contract to repair Mi-17 helicopters from Afghanistan, which means work for the next few years, and the creation of new jobs that are already being filled.
