Some seventy employees of Croatia Airlines' profitable maintenance division have left the company over the past year due to poor organisation and low salaries, the Croatian Trade Union of Aircraft Mechanics has said. As a result, a number of Serbian mechanics have been employed in their place. The head of the trade union, Ivica Turčin, said, "The main issue is the shortage of mechanics so they alter our schedules on a weekly basis, meaning that we are unable plan our time. Organisation is also poor, due to erroneous managerial decisions. People do not see any prospects here and that is the reason why they are leaving the company". Furthermore, the union argues that Croatian mechanics are finding work outside the country as they are paid up to four times more.
