Prime Minister Ana Brnabic on Tuesday evening reached an agreement on evening with strikers in Fiat’s Kragujevac to stop their strike and start negotiations.
This is according to the Serbian government.
At a press conference after the meeting held in the City Assembly of Kragujevac, Brnabic thanked the workers and announced that the government will do “everything in its power” during the negotiations.
After a closed-door meeting for more than two hours, she talked with representatives of the strikers who stopped working on June 27, and agreed to start negotiations with the employer tomorrow at noon in the government of Serbia.
Previously, the prime minister said that she was ready to talk to the workers “day and night” – but “could not respond” to their demand to have a minimum wage of RSD 45,000 (EUR 373) per month.
Earlier this week, Brnabic accused said that “bad intentions” and “political interest” were behind the strike.
