Serbia -Workers block railway and roads -October 28, 2013

Over 1,000 workers of ‘Fabrika automobila Priboj’ (FAP), an automotive manufacturer, blocked the railway line connecting Belgrade to the south Adriatic port of Bar in Montenegro in protest against long-overdue payment of wages and salaries, failure to renew workers’ healthcare cards and lack of work. The strike committee leader said ‘workers will stay there until their demands are met or a senior government official speaks to them’. In the same week workers of the transport company Autosaobraćaj spent the night on buses they used to block the main road and railway line connecting Kragujevac and Kraljevo. They demand payments of nine overdue wages, implementation of social programs, calculation of years of service to include all previous work, resolving the issue of the company’s status and establishing the responsibility for the collapse of the company.
