Kurakhovskaya mine employees have joined the striking miners from Kotlyarevskaya who have blocked the Dnepr – Donetsk road between Pokrovsk and Selidovo because of the salary debts.
Both mines are parts of the state enterprise Selidovugol.
According to the chairman of the Independent Miners’ Union of Ukraine Mikhail Volynets, the road was blocked leading to Peski and Krasnogorovka, as a result there is a long jam on the road.
“The miners understand that these people are not guilty, so slowly let the automobiles pass”, he added.
The salary debt to the state miners amounts to 1.2 billion UAH.
“The miners are forced to draw attention to the non-payment of salary, while the drivers are forced to stay in jams”, Volynets added. (Ukrainian metal)
