The union said Boras and Šimpraga had committed gross violations of the principles of the academic community as defined by the relevant documents of Croatian universities and the union’s statute.

On a number of occasions Boras violated the academic rights and freedoms of employees of the Zagreb Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences as well as their right to elect the faculty head by rejecting the candidates recommended by the Faculty Council on three occasions, the union said.

It added that Boras had obstructed the implementation of the Zagreb University collective agreement and had been running the university autocratically.

The union further said that as the acting dean of the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, Šimpraga had acted contrary to union goals and principles, treating some employees in a way that was disturbing and insulting while threatening those whose views and actions were contrary to his with cautions and dismissal.
