Former "Kingcoal" employees complain about their bad situation

In Gukovo, miners appealed to the Governor of the Rostov Region and to the President of Russia. The miners demand to pay 96 million roubles of wage arrears.

The "Caucasian Knot" has reported that over three years, the former employees of the "Kingcoal" Company have been holding regular pickets. The protestors demand to pay arrears of wages and compensation, as well as provision of coal.

The former employees of the "Kingcoal" Company have written an appeal to Rostov Region Governor Vasily Golubev and Russian President Vladimir Putin. The protestors demand to pay arrears of wages and compensations. The former miners are seeking the payment of 96 million roubles, and they already have court's decisions on the compensation payments due to them, the "Caucasian Knot" correspondent has been told by Tatiana Avachova, a member of the miners' initiative group.

In their appeal, the protestors threaten that "if the debts are not paid, the miners promise to vote against amendments to the Constitution of Russia, since the Constitution is not respected in the Rostov Region," states the appeal written by the initiative group of the former "Kingcoal" employees (a copy of the miners' appeal was received by the "Caucasian Knot").
