Romania - City hall employees start warning strike - August 31, 2016

Members of the National Federation of Unions in Public Administration (FNSA) started a series of protests on 5 July. 30,000 city hall and county council employees stopped work for one hour. The one-hour strike was a protest against the unfair wage policies on remuneration and rights of local public administration employees compared to those working in the central government, an FNSA statement says. The central public administration employees have benefited from wage increases of up to 70%, meanwhile, most of the city hall and county council employees have gross wage earnings similar or close to the gross minimum wage. FNSA’s claims include holiday vouchers for the employees and a 25% salary increase for civil servants and the contractual staff. In case the claims are not met, the union members will continue the protests.
