Reserved Stance of Labor Union Prez Further Inflames Protesting Nairit Workers

13:10, April 29, 2013

At the ongoing demonstration by Nairit Plant workers outside the Government Building, one of the demonstrators asked a government official if it would be possible for the state to pay the workers’ utility bills.

When the official said “no”, the worker retorted, “Then pay us our back wages so that he can pay those bills.”

The workers then went on to say that three years ago the Energy Minister went on record in the National Assembly that the Nairit issue would be resolved in twenty days.

“Those twenty days has now turned into three years. We want to know what to expect. We understand that this is Armenia, a washing machine where money is laundered, but it cannot go on like this,” exclaimed the worker, one of about 100 who showed up for today’s protest.
