Mechel Campia Turzii lays off 148 employees

The receiver of Mechel Campia Turzii, company that filed for insolvency in April, has laid off a total of 148 workers of the approximately 360 existing staff. The trade union leader at Mechel Campia Turzii, Ioan Pascu, told Mediafax yesterday that the employees had been notified on Wednesday that they would receive formal redundancy notices beginning with Friday.
‘The decision is illegal and breaks all legal procedures, as no reorganisation plan has been presented for the company. The received did not give any reason for the decision to lay off people, one that, in our view, has no economic justification’, Pascu said. The union leader stressed that, under the collective bargaining agreement, the employees laid off by Mechel Campia Turzii were entitled to severance packages.
According to Pascu, the union leaders and representatives of the Mechel received were going to meet up with Cluj Prefect Ioan Gheorghe Viscan this morning to find a solution for the staff not to be laid off.
In April, the Cluj Commercial Court approved Mechel’s insolvency after a request had been filed by the debtor- Mechel Campia Turzii and about ten creditors. Two other companies that were owned by the Russian group Mechel in Romania – Mechel Targoviste and Laminorul Braila – also filed for insolvency, one in February, the other one in March.
