Struggling Czeh textile manufacturer Textilana CZ, based in Nove Mesto pod Smrkem, northern Bohemia, owes its workers three months' worth of wages.

The operation, which is currently shut down, used to belong to bankrupt company Textilana Liberec. It restarted under Prague-based Profit in November 2003 and went on to re-employ around 200 of Textilana Liberec's former workers.

However, Profit's general director Vladiir Tichyhas has as yet not fulfilled his pledge to pay the workers their full salaries for the summer of 2004. The company has been plagued with financial problems in recent months.
