On October 25, the workers of the Georgian port of Poti went on an indefinite strike, the Lenta.ru reports. Thus was reported by the chairman of the trade union of the port Koka Sajaia.gt-en-newsitem-inside
According to Sajaia, the protest is being held in the port; it is attended by about a thousand people. They stopped work at 9 am local time and are not going to protest as long as the management does not meet their demands.
Sajaia said that the Port Authority has not satisfied any requests of workers, "even such elementary as improvement of toilets". Participants of the rally also demand higher wages and decent working conditions.The trade union leader states the strikers are not going to negotiate with management, since they do not work.
Recall, previously we reported that the miners of the LLC "Georgian Manganese" continued strike in the Chiatura district, Western Georgia. They demand higher wages to 100% and better working conditions.
The miners went on hunger strike several days ago, but after the meeting with the MP from the coalition of "Georgian Dream" in Chiatura district Malkhaz Tsereteli they stopped hunger strike. According to the deputy, the miners' demands are fair, since their wages do not meet the severity of work, and the conditions at the plant are terrible. Miners are hoping that the new cabinet will address their problems and contribute to their solution.
