The workers of the Fiat Chrysler Serbia (FCA) factory were again sent on paid leave last Friday which will last until November 3, the Independent Trade Union of the factory informed the Beta news agency.
The president of the factory’s trade union, Sasa Djordjevic, said the reason for the leave was a lower market demand as FCA does not produce cars for stock.
Djordjevic also said the Union’s priority is to preserve jobs and launching negotiations with the FCA regarding signing of a new collective job contract this week, as the validity of the old one expires on December 11.
