The workers from the troubled Bulgarian steel mill "Kermikovtzi" are protesting Friday for the third day in a row.
The workers vowed to continue their protest rally, blocking downtown Sofia, until the mill's future becomes clear. They demand the State finds a bidder for the mill and their overdue salaries they say have not been paid since November.
Representatives of the workers met once again with the Speaker of the Bulgarian Parliament, Georgi Pirinski. Pirinski talked to the leaders of the two trade unions at the mill, Vasil Yanachkov and Lyudmil Pavlov....
The sooner the plant declares bancruptcy and closes the better - every day of maintaining the plant costs a lot of money that are wasted for nothing, it would be better to close this thing and pay more or less decent compensations to the workers so that they have some money until they find another job.
I can understand their grim, but their battle is already lost. World is spinning forward, the plant wasn't working proftable during communism. The quality of its steel products were always poor and didn't improve anyhow. Now it is a private firm and not a state owned one.
To put it into bancrupcy (wasn't it already) would be for everybody the best solution.
