Bulgaria -Strike action at Yazaki plant -March 04, 2015

Workers started a strike at Yazaki. The reasons behind the strike are violations of the labour code.

Workers started a strike at Yazaki, a manufacturer of automotive electrical equipment and one of the biggest factories in the Yambol vicinity. The reasons behind the strike are violations of the labour code as registered by the labour inspectorate and a lack of effective results after a series of negotiations with the employer. Trade union KT Podkrepa stated that the demands of the workers in the factory include a 50% increase in salaries, implementation of ‘effectiveness bonus’, based on outstanding results, removal of discriminatory practices, including not paying bonuses if three sick leave days are taken by the employee, implementation of supplementary payments for three-shift work days, as well as facilitating trade union activities.
