SKOPJE (North Macedonia), July 15 (SeeNews) - A court in Stip, in the eastern part of North Macedonia, is looking into the grounds to open bankruptcy proceedings against shoe maker Bargala, the Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia said on Thursday.
The court has appointed an interim bankruptcy administrator and prohibited the company from using its properties without the approval of the administrator, the Federation of Trade Unions of Macedonia said in a statement.
Company employees, represented by the Federation of Trade Unions, proposed opening a bankruptcy procedure over unpaid wages and the fact that the bank accounts of the company have been blocked for more than 45 days, the statement reads.
The employees of Bargala have not received their wages for September 2020, April 2021 and May 2021, according to an earlier statement by the Federation of Trade Unions.
