Montenegro, República de - Pressure and intimidation before strike (2011)

Prior to the strike announced for 5 May 2010, the management of Kombinat aluminija Podgorica distributed questionnaires to the workers, asking them about their satisfaction with the work of the trade union and asking them to certify that they would not join the strike. Management also put pressure on two members of trade union committee, Sandra Obradović and Radovan Tošković, issuing them written warnings with threat of dismissal on the grounds of absence from the workplace, although the absence was due to trade union activities. Other workers were threatened with dismissals too. The strike was cancelled on 30 April after the management accepted to comply with the collective agreement and withdraw the planned dismissals.
