Strike May Idle Bulgaria Unit Of Turkish Glass Maker Sisecam

The workers of Trakia Glass Bulgaria, the local unit of Turkish glass and chemicals group Turkey Sise ve Cam Fabrikalari (Sisecam), will go on strike from Saturday after the management and the trade unions failed to agree on new pay benefits.

The strike could disrupt the round-the-clock production cycle of the Targovishte plant, warned the trade unionists.

The conflict has been percolating since the beginning of 2007 when the workers demanded changes to their collective labor agreement which otherwise was not due to run out before May 2008.

After the management rejected the demands, the trade unions invoked the Labor Code which provides for a revision of the collective agreement if this is warranted by circumstances that emerged during the labor process.
