Metallurgists and coalers of ArcelorMittal Temirtau are going to fight for their salaries using all means. After their 4-month-long negotiations over a 30-percent increase of rates and wages reached a deadlock, the trade unions had to hold another conference to discuss their further actions. According to Novyi Vestnik-Karaganda magazine, the suggestion to hold the rally was made at the conference held on February 25. The rally would show the management of ArcelorMittal Temirtau that "people are stretched too thin". The suggestion was supported by part of the delegates. There were also those who disagreed. "Earlier the employer have made some concessions and right now there is a wall in front of us," they said. "The rallies are ineffective and we will not achieve anything. We will be ignored until the law allows the strikes in the companies like ours. We need to file an application to Majilis (lower chamber) deputies and ask them to make necessary amendments to the legislation. If we go on a strike, the globe will not stop spinning without out metal. It will only cause losses to our management. And why should we care about their profits, if they don't share them with us?" The decision was made to continue negotiations on pay rise with the company's management. An application for the rally will be submitted to Temirtau administration as well. The request to review the laws and permit the strikes will be sent to Majilis deputies.
