The measure would lead to a more than 50 percent cut in the service’s staff, Balázs Bárány said, adding that the union demanded to know how had the catering service turned from a previously profitable unit into a loss-making operation.
MAV told MTI that it would either terminate or reduce catering and sleeper services in international trains in a cost- cutting effort as of December 10. It said it had informed the railway services of partner countries, as well as coordinated with several local unions on future employment of catering service workers.
The reduction will affect several international trains, MÁV said adding that its Metropol EuroNight service will be operated only to Prague instead of Berlin from the winter. It, however, will not affect the international Adria, Beograd, Dacia, Hungaria, Kálmán Imre, Varsovia és Wiener Walzer services, MÁV said.
No more sleeping- and buffet cars on MÁV international trains.
