Workers in Neusiedler SCP Ruzomberok, Slovakia are calling

On fellow workers in Neusiedler companies around the world, international trade union and workers activists

Dear colleagues,

we are in the situation, where basic workers rights at the company are violated, some of us were sacked for demanding decent wage conditions and organizing new trade union when old organization distanced from our demands and signed our dismissal notices. Others are threatened and intimidated in the company every day.

At the Monday 8th November rally of 120 workers we unanimously adopted resolution demanding immediately:

  • official recognition of ZOO Papier
  • reinstatement of 14 sacked members from recent weeks and of 5 members of factory committee, originally petition committee
  • freeze on all sackings
  • immediate start of negotiations on demands from original petition and social program which new union wants to put forward

Management was given time until Tuesday 9th November 8 p.m. to answer and start negotiations, otherwise we are prepared to go on with another pressure actions, including strike. On Tuesday the management informed the media that they accept our new trade union. They stopped the collective bargaining with the official trade union. This was a first victory resulting from the meeting and its positive coverage in the media! Management promised to start negotiations with us. As it is still without any details and we have no official document in hands, we call on you to go on with pressure on the company untill all our demands are met:

  • inform all the workforce about our struggle in Ruzomberok
  • organizing and sending protest letters and petitions supporting our demands
  • in case of our colleagues in Neusiedler, part of Mondi and Anglo-American plc., we urge you to express effective solidarity, including preparedness solidarity strike – attack on one of us is attack on all of us!

Please contact us at e-mail address sativa@zoznam.sk, noveodbory@post.sk
Please send protests to the company at hovorca@neusiedler.sk and at company officials in your country or international headquarters (see http://www.neusiedler.com)

The ZOOP has already spent all its money. If you want to support financially the costs for the trade union actions (newsletters, leaflets, telephone, etc.), please send a donation to the following bank account: 10006-13219052/4900 (Istrobanka).
