Protests at Mechel Campia Turzii and Oltchim

The workers laid off from Mechel Campia Turzii yesterday resumed protest for not receiving the three compensatory salaries owed by the Russian employer. They also took their children to the protest to highlight the desperate situation they were in, without money for the minimum required for daily subsistence, Agerpres informs. Almost 100 employees kept crossing the European road 60 and national road 1 on the crossing over and over again, blocking traffic. They say will be back every day until Friday to demand their legal entitlements from Mechel and Invest Nikarom. Mechel had promised fired workers it would start paying them their compensations sometime between 15 – 18 March. Oltchim employees also protested. According to digi24.ro, people have not been paid in two months and are afraid they may lose their jobs altogether. They were joined by 400 workers from the Bradu Petrochemical Division, urging the authorities to ‘stop lying’. The protesters say the judicial administrator of Oltchim is not considering an infusion of capital for the Bradu division of the compound, which – they say – means bankruptcy.
