Bad news from the Nokia factory of Jucu

The Nokia cell phone factory of Jucu, Romania, is faring bad. The management sends workers on unpaid leave all the time, often on short notice and the average monthly income has dropped to RON 500-600, from RON 800 in normal times. Actually, Nokia is running into trouble all over the world, with a dramatic drop in its share of the global market – the most severe throughout the industry. The involution is taking its toll on production since March 2011. Official sources with the Cluj Territorial Labour Inspectorate say that the authority will send its inspectors at Jucu next week, while the chief of the largest trade union of Ardeal believes that Jucu unionists gave up some of their demands precisely in order to prevent layoffs. In 2007, the head of the Employment Agency, Daniel Don said that 15,000 people would work at Jucu within a 5-year time. Now, almost five years from that promise, the Nokia factory still employs just 1,200 people.
