Uljanik strike to end as workers get paid

The workers of financially troubled Croatian shipyard Uljanik will end their strike today as the government stepped in to solve payment issues.

The shipyard announced yesterday that its bank account was unblocked while on the same day, Croatia’s prime minister said the government has found a model to pay the workers of Uljanik and the payments are expected to be made on Friday.

Around 4,500 workers of the shipyard started a strike last week, demanding top management step down in protest over the late payment of their salary.

This week, the company’s president, Gianni Rossanda resigned from all roles in Uljanik.

According to VesselsValue data, Uljanik currently has an orderbook of 11 vessels including four car carriers, three handy bulkers, two roro ships and two cruiseships.
