Workers Demonstrate at Zangezur Mine; Demand Pay Raise
A few dozen workers staged a demonstration this morning outside the offices of the Zangezur Copper and Molybdenum Combine (ZCMC) in Kajaran demanding a pay raise.
Workers say that management promised to raise their wages months ago but haven’t.
Harout Arakelyan, one of the demonstrators, told Hetq that Combine Director Mher Poloskov isn’t in Kajaran at the moment and that the matter will be discussed once he returns.
Arakelyan says that management told employees to stop working as of 3pm. No reason was given, Arakelyan says.
ZCMC CJSC is a part of the CRONIMET group of companies.
