ZAGREB, August 28, 2020 – The Workers Front (RF) party on Friday called for support to workers of the Sisak Oil Refinery, which is part of the INA oil company, stressing that they were being intimidated.
The party said that the workers had turned to RF MP Katarina Peovic, warning that they were being intimidated by the company management after the RF earlier published a list with the names of the workers to be laid off, which it had received from the workers.
The party said that the workers had gone public with an authentic document with the names of redundant workers, which the management considers disclosure of a trade secret.
It said that “the owners of INA are the ones who have violated agreements and and laws and who disrespect previous agreements with the Croatian government, under which the Sisak refinery should not be closed down, but which, judging by all accounts, will happen sooner or later.”
It was the workers’ duty to expose that fraud, the RF said, accusing the government of allowing the layoffs and threats to Sisak refinery workers.
