On the 5th of February 500 Astrakhan workers went on strike demanding payoff
their 9 months wages that they have not been paid since April 1999. Besides
their wages have been reduced in half. Meanwhile the bosses are buying
mobile phones with per hour payment equal to an avarige month wages of a
The strike was organized by an independent workers' trade-union "Zaschita".
All the attempts to start a talks with representatives of local authorities
have failed. Vice-governer and ex-member of CPRF refused to meet with the
workers' delegation and send riot police to deal with them.
When the Duma deputy for Astrakhan region Oleg Shein sent a letter to the
Finance ministry of Russia he was told that wage arrears will not be paid
befor autumn despite all the promises by Putin. Russian govrment needs money
for the war and not for workers.
"Zaschita" trade-union appeals to all workers' organizations and militants
to support Astrakhan strike and send telegrammes to Putin and Astrakan region
