President of the ‘Muntele’ Trade Union, Petre Nica said on Friday, in Petrosani, that the miners in the Jiu Valley would be consulted next week about going on an all-out strike unless the provisional insolvency administrator was changed, who was appointed by the Hunedoara Court to implement the procedure of insolvency of Hunedoara Energy Complex (CEH).
The leadership of the said union is contesting the expertise of GMC Craiova insolvency house and says the company designated as provisional insolvency administrator by the court could not manage the problems facing the CEH.
The union’s leader said that activity an coal mines Lonea, Lupeni and Vulcan was resumed on Friday after talks between the miners and the heads of unions there, but added on Monday the miners would be consulted about going on a general strike.
According to Agerpres, the miners at the coal mines Lonea, Lupeni and Vulcan refused on Friday to start the second shift after they were informed by union leaders about starting the insolvency procedure at CEH and about the firm that was appointed as provisional insolvency administrator to implement a recovery programme of the complex.
CEH has debts of over 1.2 billion lei, and has some 6,300 employees at Mintia and Paroseni power plants and at coal mines Lupeni, Livezeni Lonea and Vulcan.
