All 4,500 employees of Croatia’s shipbuilding group Uljanik have gone on strike this morning in protest over the late payment of their wages. After the meeting between Uljanik’s management board and the strike committe, the president of the Adriatic trade union, Boris Cerovac, said the administration did not accept the demands of the workers, who, besides the payment of salaries, are also seeking the departure of the management board. “It’s not just about our salaries, but about our future. We want new people who will be able to manage the company better”, Cerovac said. The employees have said they will not return to work until their demands are met. They control less than 50 percent of the company, while the state is a minority shareholder. Other owners include the country’s top insurer, Croatia Osiguranje, as well as local banks.
