Latest negotiations on work deals between the Romanian carmaker Dacia and its employees have failed again. Dacia said that they could endanger the factory’s future if they will fulfill the worker’s demands.
Today, Dacia and its employees gone through the 14th work deal negotiations of this year, but they haven’t come to a solution. The automaker claims that the actual salary increase program for the workers is already higher than the average.

Dacia offered a RON 90 (€20.4) salary increase in January 2013, followed by another RON 85 (€19.2) raise scheduled in May. Following the add-ons, they proposed a bonus RON 900 (€204.2) for top performing workers.

The proposal was refused, as the workers were still demanding a RON 480 (€109) raise, RON 1600 (€363) for performance bonus and increased vacations.

“For an operator with a salary of RON 2,000 (€454), our offer represents an increase of about 9%, well above the average market growth in 2013, which lies between 0 and 5%. Instead, applications translate into revenue growth of approximately 40% for a company where the average monthly income is over RON 3,500 (€794), well above the national average wage” said Dacia’s Human Resources Director Radu Mavrodin. He added that the demands are unrealistic and could endanger Dacia’s competitiveness against other car plants in the Renault Group.
