Staff at Sklo Bohemia and Sklarny Bohemia will not probably receive their wages for September as the companies' accounts are blocked, unions said. The BCT group has been in insolvency proceedings owing to lack of operating capital since September 22.
The unions want to hold the protest at 11:00 a.m. in front of the Government Office in Prague.
Sklo Bohemia and Sklarny Bohemia have closed down and their future fate will be decided on by receivers. BCT spokesman Karel Samec has told CTK the companies' owners are holding talks with banks about the resources for the wages.
Production in Crystalex Novy Bor and Sklarny Kavalier Sazava, BCT's other units, still continues. Staff at Crystalex received their wages today. Employees of Sklarny Kavalier as well as parent company Bohemia Crystalex Trading (BCT) will get wages on Friday.
If Sklo Bohemia and Sklarny Bohemia staff receive their wages, Kubinec is ready to cancel the protest. But he said he was convinced there will not be money for the wage payment.
The aim of the protest is to draw the public's attention to the approach of the state as the owner to the situation in the glass group, said Kubinec.
