After the representatives of the trade unions Rudnik mrkog uglja (RMU) Zenica and Breza signed an agreement with the Government of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina (FBiH) yesterday, which concluded the general strike, the miners from Zenica and Breza say that they hope that this is the beginning of the end of their agony.
The miners greeted this news from the negotiations in Sarajevo with applause, as well as their representatives who returned to Zenica in the afternoon.
As minors told yesterday, this agreement brings them hope of the new beginning, a continuation of work, and an opportunity to earn their income, BHRT writes.
“I thank the chambers of the Zenica Mine and the chambers of Breza who gave us great support. Of course, we are glad that this solution was reached, but the fight is still going on, ” said Elvedin Alic, a member of the Steering Board of the Trade Union of RMU Zenica”.
“So far, we have not had any problems with the inaction of the equipment and pit rooms, but given the delay that occurred at a certain time, besides the inspection supervision, we are also organizing prospective one. We will form a Commission and, before the miners and workers descend, we will visit all the pit rooms and equipment and do the validation check, ” said Isad Turalic, the technical director of RMU Zenica.
The production in the RMU Zenica was supposed to continue last night during the third shift, while the RMU in Breza should start working today.
