Nairit employees promised salary refund

PanARMENIAN.Net - Nairit chemical plant employees gathered outside presidential residence to demand a refund of salaries and a plant relaunch.

Following a meeting with a representative of presidential stuff, the protesters were promised a possible salary refund for 3 months, a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter on the ground said.

Assurances were further given that the relaunch issue will be resolved by December 20.

However, as a PanARMENIAN.Net reporter learnt from protesters, the latters were skeptical as to promises heard. As they noted, salaries for November 2011 were paid to them in September 2012.

Minister of Energy Armen Movsisyan has also met with Nairit delegation, giving similar promises.

As the plant employees stressed, they’ll stop at nothing to defend their rights.
