from Romania TVR1-Romanian mine explosion kills 12
This is the way in Romania the guvernment takes care of the Romanian workers, they are first busy to fill up their pockets with
milions of $$$ and latter to take care of workers.
Twelve miners died and thirteen others were interned at the Hospital Emergency Petrosani, following two explosions that took place Saturday at the Petrila mine.
From daily The Morning Star in Britain:
Romanian miners’ demo hits day four
Thursday 08 March 2012
Thousands of coal miners employed by a state firm demonstrated for a fourth day in western Romania today over low pay and working conditions.
They mounted their latest protest after talks with managers broke down.
The workers are demanding that the state-owned company, which employs 7,800 people at seven mines, delivers on a January agreement that awarded them a 10 per cent wage rise.
They said they would walk the 205 miles from Petrosani to Bucharest but were foiled by police who blocked a bridge leading out of the city.
And workers in Romania’s mining industry face an even bigger fight in coming years.
The government has agreed with the International Monetary Fund to sack 3,300 mineworkers by 2018 in return for loans.
