Half of Upetrom 1 Mai Ploiesti employees to be laid off in September

The company “Upetrom 1 Mai” Ploiesti, specialized in manufacturing oil equipment, will lay off 744 employees in September, that is, nearly half of the company’s staff, according to a notice remitted by the factory to the Prahova County Employment Agency (AJOFM), quoted by Mediafax. At present, the old “1 Mai” oil equipment factory, owned by private shareholders, has 1,544 employees. The Ploiesti factory’s staff staged several protests lately, namely, a strike and several pickets, targeting the company’s administrative office, as well as the Prahova Prefecture. The workers are disgruntled with the fact that the owner refused to extend the collective bargaining agreement, which expired at the end of April and which stipulated the payment of 12 compensatory wages in the event of a partial collective dismissal.
