Union Leader Eats Own Finger In Protest Over Wages

April 28, 2009

Serbia (ChattahBox) – A union official who was protesting against the wages being paid to himself and fellow employees has cut off and eaten his own finger.

Zoran Bulatovic took such extreme measures to show how desperate the situation for himself and other workers was. He hoped that it would finally get employers to look at the situation rationally.

“We, the workers have nothing to eat, we had to seek some sort of alternative food and I gave them an example,” he explained.

β€œIt hurt like hell.”

The company, Raska Holding, has failed to pay a large portion of it’s 100 employees for years, forcing them to live off of benefits, which does not feed their families.

The union says that they will not stop protesting until their demands are met, demands which include a state-equity backed debt recovery program, and a welfare system.
