Bulgaria -Still uncertainty over troubled producer of non-ferrous metals -June 22, 2012

Workers at the Lead and Zinc Complex in Kardzhali are considering civil disobedience due to the uncertain future of the plant. On 12 April, after 40-day protests over delayed salaries, the workers received some of their money, totalling BGN 500 000, which were distributed on as a result of the sale of another troubled company, the Gorubso-Madan mining firm. The workers filed personal claims in Court against the owner of the plant, Bulgarian oligarch Valentin Zahariev, who is also known for mismanagement of what used to be the largest steel-maker in Bulgaria, the now bankrupt Kremikovtzi plant near Sofia. Workers demand the replacement of the entire management while protests continue.
