1,500 INA Workers Take Protest to Parliament

INAAround 1,500 workers from Croatia’s largest refiner INA have staged protests on Monday in front of parliament in the capital Zagreb…

The workers are protesting against the closure of INA’s refinery in the central Croatian city of Sisak, and turning the plant into a storage facility for oil products from Hungary. Hungarian company MOL has a 49% state in INA, whilst the Croatian government own 44% of shares.

Protestors, carrying the banner, ‘Today INA, tomorrow Croatia’, are demanding that Prime Minister Zoran Milanović responds to request that INA should be a vertically integrated company, and assure that none of the 12,000 jobs in Croatia are lost.

Protestors say that INA, which was built up by Croatians over generations and has over 400 petrol pumps in Croatia and the region, must remain a flagship company in Croatia that develops its production and invests into its two refineries and in oil and gas exploration and production as well in its retail chain of petrol stations.
