Public workers continue all-out strike

The town halls, the county councils and the institutions responsible to them from all over Romania that are affiliated to the National Federation of the Administration Trade Unions (FNSA) have gone on indefinite all-out strike on Monday, with nearly 65,000 workers striking, FNSA president Valer Suciu told Agerpres.

Suciu said the FNSA called to Monday's strike all the unions in most of the county councils, county towns, cities and rural towns from all over the country that are affiliated to the Federation, except for the city halls of Brasov, Targu Mures and Arad.

'There is a special case at the Piatra Neamt City Hall, where pressure was put on the workers to not go on strike; they gave in to such blackmail and resumed work after two hours' strike', Suciu said.

The union leader called on the media to report the real situation relating to the participation and organisation of the strike by the Federation, 'given the gross disinformation and the efforts to play down the general strike in the local public administration that the representatives of the Romanian Government, by the county prefect's institution, have communicated the media'. Such playing down of the strike also came from 'some union leaders, whose only concern is to appear on all television channels, denouncing the fate of the local public administration staff, without however representing their interests and thus falsely acting as leaders of the workers in the Romanian public administration, while doing everything they can to disturb their protests', the Federation leader said.
