Croacia - Two shop stewards dismissed (2011)

Ante Buljan and Branko Norac, shop stewards of the Trade Union of Drivers and Traffic Workers of Autoprijevoz, in Sinj, were dismissed in April 2010 without the consent of their union. Both shop stewards then started a hunger strike. Later that month they were received by the President of Croatia Ivo Josipović and by the Head of the Prime Minister’s Office. In July, the Municipal State Attorney’s Office in Sinj initiated a procedure in the Municipality Court against Managing Director Joško Jerkan for the illegal dismissals. An investigation was also under way for a wide range of other criminal activities in the company.
