Military Union declares Serbian defense minister undesirable employer Izvor: Tanjug/ Ministarstvo odbrane/ Andrija Gavrilović

The Serbian Military Union said on Monday that it had declared Defense Minister Aleksandar Vulin an undesirable employer.

A press release said that Vulin had been awarded the Black Plaque of Undesirable Employer, adding that it is the only award he deserves.  

The decision to award the plaque was taken following what the union called a show of servility by high ranking officials in the defense system, saying that was being done only for political reasons and to raise the minister’s personal ratings while demeaning the military profession. The award is criticism of Vulin during his tenure as employer of the Serbian military, it added.

The union said that the reasons behind the decision include the fact that the military lost more personnel under Vulin than during the wars of the 1990s, the persecution of union members and the fact that military resources were used for a celebration of Vulin’s Movement of Socialists, dubious procurement deals and publicly advocating the secession of a part of the country’s territory.

The union also criticized Vulin for wearing Army of Serbia (VS) insignia on a private black uniform in violation of the law.
