The negotiations over the collective labour contract for 2013 at the ArcelorMittal Galati plant failed at the end of last week, after the management and trade unions did not reach a common point of view about salaries, Mediafax reports. The unions announced that they will start the legal approaches in view of calling a work conflict. “The management kept its offer of granting three bonuses, one of 2 pc of the annual salary in January, another of 2 pc in July – both unconditioned. Besides, they offered another bonus of 1.5 pc for December, but depending on profit. We do not agree to these proposals and we demanded a salary increase of 7 pc, the increase of annual premiums to RON 200 and the holiday bonus to RON 500, maintaining the minimum salary per unit RON 50 above the minimum salary in economy and we want the employees that work in shifts to be paid based on the hourly schedule of continuous shift, everything enforced retroactively since January 1st,” the spokesman of employees, Vasile Crisan said.
