Workers from the biggest Croatian shipbuilding group Uljanik have gone on strike for the fourth time this year.
Boris Cerovac, president of the strike committee, told reporters earlier this week that workers are aware that the strike could mean the end of the company.
“I hope that someone is willing to find a solution in a short time. Nevertheless, the problem is quite large and significant. We are approaching bankruptcy,” Cerovec said.
All work – including via subcontractors – has stopped at the yard this week.
Uljanik is the oldest shipyard in Croatia and has been in financial difficulties for years with a number of orders cancelled recently.
