Bulgarian Danube Shipyard Workers Rise in Protest over Delayed Pay

Date: 12.01.2011

The workers from the Rousse Shipyard Jsc based in Bulgaria's Danube city of Ruse have declared civil disobedience after they haven't received their salaries for three months.

On Wednesday, the workers rallied in the yard of the plant demanding their pay for October, November, and December 2010, and protesting the intermittent delays of their salaries that they saw in 2010, stating that in the same period the shipbuilding company completed four new ships.

They said the management would usually give them advance payments of BGN 100 in order to make them go to work, and would then forget to pay them their actual salaries; they made it clear they would not resume work until they get all due salaries.

Dozens of workers are reported to have already left the plant despite the unemployment precisely because of the irregular payments.

The Rousse Shipyard has been warned by the Labor Inspectorate to pay all overdue salaries by January 14; the company has already been fined BGN 3 000 for its violations with the delayed salaries.

On Wednesday, the management of the company declined to talk to journalists.

The Rousse Shipyard was founded in 1881. In April 1999, it was was privatized by Rousse Shipyard Beteiligungsgesellschaft mbH - Germany.
