BCR employees prepare strike

The members of the Romanian Commercial Bank (BCR) trade union are preparing to embark on a new strike, HotNews.ro reports. Trade unions in the other banks back their claims. Their main cause for dissatisfaction is wages.


“In any capitalist country, the owner wants you to work as much as possible on as little as possible money, and trade unionists want to earn as much as possible on the minimum amount of labour. The acceptable wage lies at the intersection of the two trends,” sources close to the Romanian Banking Association (ARB) stated. The head of BCR’s Free Trade Union Federation (FSI), Ciprian Ionescu, attributes the strike initiative to the fact that BCR reported a profit, which implies the time for sacrifices should come to an end. The management states, in turn, that the market remains fraught with uncertainty and that it cannot afford to grant a raise at the moment. According to the National Institute of Statistics (INS), the average monthly pay in Romanian banks is RON 3,300, net, and RON 4,483, gross wages.
