ZAGREB, December 17, 2018 – Most of the workers at the Uljanik shipyard in Pula returned to work on Monday after a two-week strike over unpaid wages.

They are still owed the difference between the minimum and full wage for September and October, and unless they are paid the minimum wage by the end of this week, they will also be owed the full wage for November.

“We still don’t know what will be with the remainder of our wages and when they will be paid,” strike committee chairman Boris Cerovac told Hina. “The strike has been put on hold, but the strike committee reserves the right to call it again at any time,” he added.

“The workers have returned to work, but they are visibly dissatisfied and angry with this situation. This agony has been going on for too long, and there’s no news of any progress regarding a final restructuring plan and a strategic partner,” Cerovac said.

He said that the strike committee was meeting with the management again today to get a confirmation that the minimum wage for November would be paid by the end of the week.
