Christian Fernsby |
The Federation of Independent Unions of Mine Workers of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina will not leave the miners of the Zenica Brown Coal Mine alone in their struggle for the right to pay, and today in Sarajevo in front of the building of the ruling company Public Company Elektroprivreda BiH will hold the announced protest, President of the USSR FBiH Sinan Husić said in Zenica.

After today’s session of the Presidency of the USSRRFBiH in Zenica, he announced that tomorrow at the protests in Sarajevo, which will be organized from 11 am to 2 pm, there will be 500 workers from seven mines of the JP EPBiH Concern.

“We are not asking for anyone to receive us tomorrow. We are coming to express our huge dissatisfaction with everything that is happening… Tomorrow we want to say that we are united,” said Husić, reports Fena news agency.

As he said, they tried to direct them from some structures of the EPBiH to some other addresses, in order to solve the issue of salary payment for Zenica miners.

“But we say: Miners are always at the right address and the state, what are you waiting for?! If what we are going to do does not bear fruit tomorrow, the state must do what the state needs to do and end the suffering and suffering of 830 workers of RMU Zenica,” said Husić.

He underlined that the Zenica miners must receive their salary for June, as they received for the month of May according to the Agreement signed on July 3, after last month’s suspension of production in that mine.

He noted that they have already sent a letter to the address of the new FBiH Minister of Energy, Industry and Mining, Vedran Lakić, in which they request that “RMU Zenica must be the first issue to be dealt with.

“We need to carry out an analysis from beginning to end, see on the human resources plan what we have, what is possible, with incentive severance pay, retirement, what is possible to do on the mutual termination of the employment contract, what is possible to redirect from certain services to production processes… at the end of the day, we need to re-examine where those people are, who only on paper claim to be workers of RMU Zenica, because that’s what production and workers from the production process are telling us these days, there are such people. We put it on paper,” says Husić.

As he added, he has information that this morning the director of RMU Zenica was ordered by the relevant ministry “to do what we are talking about”.

Regarding the need to review the relationship between the mines of that concern and the governing society EPBiH, Husić expressed the hope that the new Government of the Federation of BiH and the future leadership of the EP BiH “will not be afraid of the determination of the Trade Union for those processes”.

As a reminder, due to the situation in the Zenica Brown Coal Mine, the board of directors of the Association of Independent Unions of Mine Workers of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina recently made a decision to organize a protest that will be held tomorrow, August 1, in front of the building of the Public Enterprise Elektroprivreda BiH in Sarajevo.

They point out that due to the unpaid salary for June and allowance for a hot meal for the month of May, the Zenica miners stopped production on Tuesday, July 25 in the second shift, when a group of 30 miners decided not to leave the “Raspotočje” pit where they spent two nights.
