Case initiated against ex-head of Darasun gold mine after workers’ hungry strike
On Monday, workers of the Darasun minery in Transbaikalia started a mass hunger strike, demanding the payment of debts on their wages.
According to the regional prosecutor’s office, a criminal case of administrative offense due to non-payment of salaries to miners has been initiated against former Director General of the minery Yury Busygin. Earlier, the enterprise had already been brought to administrative liability for the same offense on the initiative of the State Labor Inspectorate in the Transbaikal region.
40 workers have been starving for two days, claiming that they will not stop the hunger strike until they are paid the full amount upon dismissal. Due to the staffing cuts, 454 people were dismissed in the period from July 24 to August 4; the exact amount of the enterprise's debt to employees is still unknown. Governor of the Transbaikal region Natalya Zhdanova called the workers’ hunger strike "an act of desperation."
Earlier, 656 lawsuits had been filed with the court for a total of 30 million rubles ($516 thousand), protecting the interests of mine workers. The court granted 554 of them.
To recall, September 15, Konstantin Strukov sold Uryumkan’s minery for $1 million.
