The workers of the Krasnouralsk chemical plant have stopped their hunger strike
The workers of the acid-processing workshop of the Krasnouralsk chemical plant in Sverdlovsk region have stopped their hunger strike, Alexander Korelin, chairman of the plant's trade union committee, told RIA Novosti on Monday. He added that on Sunday night, 24 participants in the hunger strike received their full wages for 11 months. Three women whose condition was alarming received money on Friday. According to the source, the participants in the six-day hunger strike are now in the rehabilitation centre of the plant. Three women are still in hospital. Korelin also said that the entire staff of the plant had received the promise to pay wage arrears for three months in the near future. "If the people do not get their money, protests may be resumed. Some staff members have already announced their readiness to begin a hunger strike to get their wages," said Korelin. The hunger strike began last Tuesday. The protesters are demanding complete payment of their wage arrears. According to trade union workers, the debt for 11 months amounts to 50 million rubles (about $1.8 million). Last Wednesday, the prosecutor's office of Krasnouralsk opened a criminal case against Alexander Prokopyev, acting director of the federal unitary enterprise, Krasnouralsk chemical plant, for wage arrears. This formerly secret plant is producing explosives, and also household and industrial chemical products. The enterprise employs over 2,000 people
