As workers of the factory ‘Fiat Plastic’ are asking their employer to reinstate last year’s salary level, Autonomous Trade Union announced that the strike would be radicalised and a big gathering on April 24 in front of the City Council building in Kragujevac would be organised. President of the Trade Union and Strike Committee Zoran Miljković said that workers from Fiat factory in Kragujevac and cooperative firms are also expected to come.
This gathering will be a sign of support for the workers because of the ‘uncertainty’. Their demands are the following:the production of a new model in the Fiat factory in Kragujevac (FCA), more work and workers from Kragujevac not going to work in Slovakia.
Workers of ‘Fiat Plastic’, where bumpers for the model ‘Fiat 500L’ are produced, continued general strike being dissatisfied because of the reduction of salaries and lack of negotiations with the employer. They oppose the reduction of the vacation bonus and ask for the paid leave bonus to be equal to the one paid to the workers in FCA, i.e. 65% of the salary.
The Autonomous Trade Union explains that the reduction of salaries ensued when the trade union refused to sign collective agreement because it envisages the cancellation of the right to strike.
