Bulgaria -Irrigation systems workers protest over unpaid wages -March 18, 2014

Workers at Irrigation Systems have started national protests, including a hunger strike, to demand their unpaid wages. Irrigation Systems has major financial difficulties and has been unable to pay its workers´ wages for over four months. The company has large outstanding debts to several power distribution companies, who are now threatening to cut off electricity. While criminal procedures are underway against the former chief of Irrigation Systems, no solution has been found regarding the unpaid wages.
