Bulgaria - Demonstration of tobacco workers - May 31, 2016

Trade unions have called a demonstration on 9 May in front of the government headquarters in central Sofia against the decision of the country’s major tobacco holding Bulgartabac to close down a Sofia-based tobacco plant. The decision, in force as of 1 April 2016, which left 420 people without employment, was a result of Bulgartabac's move to halt exports of cigarettes and other products to the Middle East. Workers will receive their salaries by the end of May. An additional number of jobs offered by Bulgartabac and connected to the plant's work might also be lost as a result of the closure.
