Around 3,000 police officers gathered in front of the government building in the Slovenian capital to protest at the government’s failure to grant them long-standing pay awards.

These include an up to 35 percent pay rise.

A strike last month was low-key, and was slammed by the prime minister as “irresponsible” during a refugee emergency.

Analysts say that the support the police are getting from firefighters, teachers, and other public sector workers may be a two-edged sword, as they would be unlikely to settle for less and be emboldened to take action, too. It hardens the position of the cash-strapped coalition government even more.
