The suspension of the strike by the Bucharest Transport Company (STB) decided by the court on Thursday was not put into practice by the unionists, and currently the bailiffs go to the headquarters of each working point to display the respective decision. On Friday, the general director of STB, Adrian Crit, declared that the court will rule on Friday regarding the legality of this action.
"Yesterday there was a decision based on a request for a presidential ordinance regarding the suspension of the strike. Unfortunately, as a result of the request of some union leaders, they did not put it into practice. In view of the legality of this action, I consider that it is an illegal action, I consider that the representative union was involved in this, in the conditions in which there is the involvement of some union leaders to block public transport in the capital city.
He said that the situation of public transport in Bucharest is the same as on Thursday, the employees refusing to go on the route. Crit conveys that he is open to dialogue, empathizes with employees and apologizes to Bucharest residents for recent events.
Asked about the fact that the unionists are demanding his resignation in order to unblock this situation, Crit reiterated that through the Collective Labor Agreement, the unionists cannot do this, as the management cannot request the revocation of some union leaders either, Agerpres informs.
