Forty-two miners have refused to leave the Cherno More Mine in Burgas and are staging an underground strike. The miners are demanding the company pay their salaries, which they haven’t received in two months. The miners trade union is ensuring that the workers who are on strike are supplied with enough food and have an ambulance standing by to avoid accidents. Before the start of the underground strike, miners held two one-hour warning protests. The mining company has confirmed that about BGN 600,000 in salaries for around 400 miners have not been paid.
