Bulgaria -Trade unions call for an emergency meeting on long-delayed pay -March 28, 2012

Metal workers of the Lead and Zinc Complex in Kardzhali have blocked the main road into the mining town after a visit of Prime Minister Borisov to the company management failed to deliver a solution for the long overdue payment of wages. Workers from the Madan metal mines received their wages last week after the exploitation rights for the mine were transferred to a new company, but the Kardzhali complex is not subject to a state-granted concession and no solution is in sight for these workers. The Prime Minister announced his intention of speaking to the company’s other creditors while unions warned that the actions would continue.
