Additional Information

More than 200 workers lost their jobs after a definitive closure of the machinery company Škoda Klatovy that went bankrupt at the end of 2002. Because the take-over by a new owner (Golondrina) since September 2005 was not successful, dismissed workers claim three wage loss compensation at local labour offices.
