Metro builders once again went on strike because of non-payment of salaries by SMU "Ingeokom"

In Moscow, metro builders on Tuesday once again went on strike because of non-payment of wages of SMU "Ingeokom", said on the air of the radio station Ekho Moskvy (Echo of Moscow) activist Alexander Zimbovsky.

"More than 100 people are on strike, they refused to work because of a small salary. The Labor Code allows it - in case of non-payment of wages for more than two weeks, workers can suspend work, but this is not a few weeks, but several months already, "the activist said.

He recalled that the workers of the SME "Ingeokom" had already carried out a strike because of non-payment of wages in February 2017, then the company's management promised to pay off the salary arrears, but to date has paid only part of the amount.

The leadership of the SMU "Ingeokom" has not yet responded to the strike, added A. Zimbovsky. "At the moment the management does not say anything. This is not the first strike on this site on this topic, the first was on 20 February. Then it was promised by the leadership of the SMU "Ingeokom" in the presence of the prosecutor's office and the Investigative Committee to immediately pay off debts on wages, debts were repaid only partially, "the activist stressed.
