Groupe Renault Romania has reacted to Prime Minister Mihai Tudose’s statements during the Government sitting on Wednesday, when he talked about ‘a protest by Romanians, supported by a company which externalize profits.” He mentioned no names, but digi24.ro says it is obvious Tudose referred to the protests in Mioveni on Tuesday, with the participation of several thousand Dacia employees.
“We do not comment on the political decisions made by the authorities. The protest on November 7 was an initiative by SAD (Automobile Dacia trade union), an independent legal person. Our company was only informed by SAD on its approach, according to the collective bargaining agreement. We will organise our operations so that we can produce the vehicles ordered by our clients,” the company’s release reads.
During the Government sitting, PM Tudose said the negative reaction against the amendments to the Tax Code come as ‘some multi-national companies are inflamed’, dissatisfied by the decisions which will prevent them to externalise profits.
“I have appreciated, with quotation marks, the protest of some Romanians supported by the management, who wanted highways, whereas the company externalizes the profits. Beautiful! It’s no longer working like that,” Tudose said.
According to digi24.ro, SAD leader Nicolae Pavelescu said: “In regard to our employer, it has no merit and no guilt for our action. We are citizens of Romania, a European Union Member State, and we shall fight for our rights in the street whenever it is necessary.”
