Serbia -Protest against privatisation -June 06, 2013

Workers in the state-run pharmaceutical company Galenika rallied against possible privatisation of the company in front of the government. They called on the government to adopt a strategy to make keeping Galenika and having it recovered in a majority state ownership. Workers asked for guarantees that the rights arising from collective agreements be honoured and the drafting of a quality social program. The trade unions Nezavisnost Galenika and the Independent Trade Union in the company have submitted their demands to the government. They demanded to be received by officials who should decide the fate of the company, over what they call non-transparency and vague reasons for an extension of the bid deadline.
