The employees of the Intervention, Rescue and First Aid Team of the Romanian Television Society (TVR), the president of MediaSind TVR and another employee will go on hunger strike on Thursday, after the acting general director of the institution refused to discuss with the members of this department about the situation of the fire extinguishing installations, which are non-functional, reads a statement issued on Wednesday by the Romanian Union of Journalists (SRJ) MediaSind.

The protest action by going on hunger strike will take place in front of the TVR public broadcaster headquarters, the press release said.
