Strike at Daewoo shipyard in Mangalia

Approximately one third of the 3,000 people working at the Daewoo shipyard in Mangalia went on an unlimited strike yesterday, being dissatisfied with the company’s refusal to offer them the salary hike they had asked for, ‘Jurnalul National’ daily informs.

Trade union members have thus resumed the strike they had started in June, one they had stopped after the Constanta Court admitted the company’s request and declared the strike illegal. The ‘Navalistul’ trade union subsequently attacked the court’s decision at the Constanta Court of Appeals. The latter overturned the ruling.
Marin Florian, leader of ‘Navalistul’ trade union, pointed out that the employees have the same demands they had in June, namely a salary hike of RON 300 and the signing of a new collective work contract that would expire at the end of 2011. The trade union leader also stated that the employees did not want to immediately go on strike, instead trying to negotiate with the company’s leadership. The latter however did not take part in talks.
Gemal Memetcea, spokesperson of Daewoo – Mangalia Heavy Industries SA, stated that the trade union members have the right to strike but their action is “a bit irrational” given the current economic context.
