BIKE EUROPE:LJUBLJANA, Slovenia (Feb 4)- Almost all the employees of Elan Bikes went on strike yesterday. This will continue until negotiations with the management start . Production is stopped, but management and sales staff continue with their work. Main reason for the strike is the unsure future of the company – 90 people working there demand to know what they can expect. They know production will move, but it’s still uncertain where to, and how many people will lose their jobs. There are also many other demands, but these are not convincing enough for general manager Aleksander Mokrovic, who believes that the employees have nothing to complain about. According to him, sales are 30 % higher than expected over the last three months, so the planning is actually surplussed. Meanwhile nobody really believes that Elan bikes will get out of trouble, since the existing management seems to have no real vision of what to do with the company. A lot depends on Tavcar Tevz, president of the board in EB, but he didn’t want to give any statements to the press at the moment. (GS)
