Workers at the troubled Pula based shipyard went on strike again on Monday. The strike started on October 20th but was put on hold on November 19th after a new management was appointed.
Union leader Boris Cerovac said on Sunday that workers were forced to stage another strike because they have not received any kind of guarantee from the company’s management regarding their future. He also noted that they had not heard from Prime Minister Andrej Plenković or Economy Minister Darko Horvat.
Minister Horvat however, feels that while it is their legitimate right to strike, this kind of industrial action will not help resolve the company's problems, adding that government had done everything in its power to save the ailing shipyard. "I think that what the state has managed to do for Uljanik this year, not just as a company but for the workers as well, is on the outer limits of what domestic and EU legislation permits," Horvat said.
