“After nearly one month, some 1,800 workers from the troubled Uljanik shipyard in Pula went back to work today after deciding to give management a two-week window to reset course.

Despite receiving only part of their salaries for September – equal to the national minimum – workers agreed to a 15-day strike moratorium in order to prevent irreparable damage to the company and give management time to draft a new restructuring plan.

‘Many went back to work, while others continue to hold out over unpaid wages. We tried to explain to them that management was still unable to pay the salaries in full. By going back to work for these two weeks, we are showing that we are here to work and earn our salaries,’ said strike committee president, Boris Cerovac.” (Voice of Croatia)
