Wildcat strikes in one of the largest retailers in Bulgaria

Wildcat strikes in one of the largest retailers in Bulgaria

"The workers from one of the biggest Bulgarian retail stores Picadilly, along with anarchosyndicalists from Autonomous Worker’s Union went on wildcat strikes across the country. The reason is wage theft – workers haven’t been paid for months. The company owners and high management are hiding and refuse to give any explanations. The demands of the workers are for immediate payment of the salaries and full benefits. They occupied the entrances of the company headquarters in Sofia, but were blocked by private security sent by the management members hiding inside."

Hey, i'm one of the participants in the strikes. My union is in the middle of four different conflicts right now and they are all about wage theft ( in a sewing workshop, in one of the mobile operators and in the southern coal mines), so there will be more detailed article about wage theft in Bulgaria in the coming days.
