The trade union sent an open letter to Prime Minister Andrej Plenković and Transport and Infrastructure Minister Oleg Butković, emphasising that failure to act in a timely fashion could drive  this Croatian company into a disaster.

The union threatens to stage industrial action and protests unless rapid action is taken to address current issues in relation to the transfer of Pružne građevine Ltd from the ownership of HŽ Infrastruktura (Croatian Railways Infrastructure) to the Centre for Restructuring and Sale (CERP).

It also accuses the HŽ Infrastruktura director, Ivan Kršić, of failing to stick to the plan to transfer the company to CERP.

The union’s press release underscores that outlays for the maintenance of railways for a four-year period have been slashed from a billion kuna to HRK 460 million.

Therefore, it is necessary to find solutions for the renewal of the machinery and for funds for severance packages for lay-offs.

The union proposes that the debts in the amount of HRK 50 million should be taken over by HŽ Infrastruktura, as CERP’s ownership of Pružne Građevine puts the latter in a new position surrounded by uncertainties.
