Heavy water plant union continues protest

The Free Trade Union at the Romag-Prod heavy water plant of the state-owned Nuclear Activity Autonomous Administration (RAAN) continued its protest on Monday.

Union leader Adrian Stoea told Agerpres  that the protests – to be held over August 10-14 and having got the required approval, after starting as a wildcat strike of some 200 workers on August 5 – are carried out at RAAN headquarters based in the city of Drobeta Turnu Severin.

“Our demands include the payment of the salary rights and providing social security in the case of the redundancies announced by the administration for October 2015 and March 2016. We want to persuade the decision-makers responsible for RAAN closure to consider our interests”, Stoea underscored.

The unionists at Romag-Termo Heating Plant no longer joined their Heavy Water Plant union fellows’ protest, since they believe the Government will deliver on its promises to send to RAAN 25 million lei in no more than three days and hand out meal vouchers.

Romag-Termo union leader Alexandru Tanase added for Agerpres  that he stood by the protesting colleagues, but pointed out a protest needs reason, not show and stressed Romag-Prod unionists “demand things that have already been clarified in the redundancy plans approved by the creditors’ assembly and set in the memorandum signed with the Economy Ministry.”
