Dozens of employees of the Pirelli Tyres plant of Slatina staged a spontaneous protest in the company yard, Monday morning, in a sign of solidarity with the employee that went into hunger strike late last week, over labour conditions and small salaries, Mediafax reports. The protesters complained about “working conditions and small salaries” and voiced their solidarity with Dragos Stanciu, a fellow employee who went on hunger strike at the end of last week. “We resorted to this form of protest because over the ridiculously small wages and the working conditions,” he said. The plant management invited Dragos Stanciu for talks yesterday. “Following these talks, I believe they will offer us better conditions,” Stanciu added. The management of Pirelli company considers Stanciu’s protest as “unjustified,” because the employee sent “no complaint” to the company before going on hunger strike. “The salary policy of Pirelli is in compliance with acting legislation. Pirelli guarantees all its employees salaries proportional to their work, and pays extra hours as required by law,” reads a Pirelli release.
