Montenegro, República de - Dismissed while on strike (2012)

In Tei Mont, in Nikšić, 11 out of 14 workers went on strike on 8 November 2010 due to unlawful reduction in salaries up to 50%, in spite of company’s good financial performance. During the strike, the employer dismissed five striking workers. On 4 February 2011, the company brought in two workers from Serbia to replace the workers on strike. Although the Labour Inspection warned new workers they were not allowed to perform work for the company, they ignored the warning and continued to work for next three days. The dismissed workers sued the company. The court ruled that the employer should reinstate all workers and pay all unpaid salaries.
