Tanjug  November 6, 2003

No major progress achieved in talks between trade unions, US Steel

20:27 SMEDEREVO , Nov 6 (Tanjug) - The general strike of US Steel Serbia workers is entering its second month and the management is doing nothing to seriously review strikers' demands, it was said on Thursday by the strikers' committee made up of the representative trade unions of the former Sartid concern. Although it has not observed any of the obligations envisaged under the Law on the Strike, collective agreement and signed protocol, the company management is behaving as if it is not a side in the dispute and is neglecting its obligations, the statement said.
