In the Trans-Baikal Territory, employees of the mining company "Darkhan" began an indefinite strike due to partial non-payment of wages. The Investigative Committee is checking.

According to ZabNews, about 80 employees of the enterprise in the village of Zolotorechensk did not go to work. They announced the strike for an indefinite period until salaries and compensation for months of overtime are paid. Also, some employees demand to return the withheld money for food, which was deducted from the salary. All work has now been stopped at the enterprise. According to employees, every month they are not paid extra 10-15 thousand rubles, for several years considerable debts have accumulated. Some are deducted another 10 thousand rubles for food, which the gold dwellers living in the same village do not use. The strike leaders were warned three days before the start of the protests.

As EastRussia was told in the regional investigative committee, the mining company extracts gold in the Olovyaninsky district. Local media reported that workers began to strike due to partial non-payment of wages.

Law enforcement officers have begun a pre-investigation check. They plan to interview workers and company management. Documentation will also be withdrawn from the office for study. Based on the results of the check, a procedural decision will be made.
