Give Up Work, Labor Code Allows

Sakhalin miners won’t work for free
While developing a new Labor Code, communists and other leftist forces did their best to keep the socialism era guarantees to the workers. But for a compromise reached between the Russian Federation of Independent Trade Unions and the government, they would have been a success with the struggle. In any case, as it turned out, the new Labor Code provides considerable opportunities for workers to exert influence upon employers.

According to the Vostok Media news agency, miners from the Russian city of Sinegorks which is on Sakhalin, driven to despair, decided to fight for their constitutional rights. The matter of the fact is that the miners were not paid their salaries for seven months already. According to the new Labor Code, if the backpay exceeds 15 days, workers have the right to stop working. The Sakhalin miners organized a meeting and decided to inform the management  of the Yuzhno-Sakhalinskaya  mine, where they were working, that they were leaving the mining face for this very reason.
 
The strike caused great turmoil on Sakhalin; officials from the Labor Inspection and local prosecutor’s office immediately arrived at the mine. However, neither director of the mine, nor representatives of the mine management came to meet with the workers and Labor Inspection officials. Instead, deputy of the regional Duma Zhanna Ivanova and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk vice-mayor Vladimir Vereshchagin tried to persuade the miners to recommence work. But the strikers won’t obey.
