Employees of Banca Comerciala Romana (BCR), the largest bank by assets in Romania, will protest at their working place between August 13 and 15, unhappy with the modifications of the working schedule, the dismissal plan and the unequal payment, the president of their labor union announced.

Union members will wear a white band at work in sign of protest. Operations at units countrywide, the head of the union added.

BCR employees said they are not satisfied with the new working schedule established on July 14 for the units in the territory (retail and corporate). Most of them are opened to the public between 9 a.m. and 5:30 p.m., but some large subsidiaries close at 6:30 p.m. All large units, half of the medium units and some of the smaller ones will also be opened on Saturdays.

The union representatives claim that the new schedule fails to take into account the employees' needs and respect the legal and contractual provisions regarding the normal working time of eight hours a day, five days a week. Employees complain that they work extra hours and have no time left for social and family life.
