Romania -Chemical workers protest -March 28, 2013

Employees of the country’s largest chemical producer Oltchim started a protest outside the production unit in Ramnicu Valcea, as they were unhappy with their unpaid salaries and the news that they would be laid off. Over 1,000 workers are affected. Trade unions stated that the production facility in Ramnicu Valcea is working at only 6% of its capacity, and the €45 million promised as working capital never came. The money would have allowed an increase in production to 65%, which would have also kept employees working.
