Here’s the report, on December 5th, at
Staff Kremenchug steel plant, which is owned by a group of “Private”, owned by Igor Kolomoisky, plan to massively dismiss. Already in January, the owners want to cut more than two and a half thousand people. According to preliminary data, the official reason for this mass reduction is the loss of the main market – Russia. Chairman of the trade union committee of PJSC “Kremenchug steel mill” Alexander Shishkin commented on the situation, noting that it does not reduce, and layoffs, that is a significant difference.
“Reducing almost leads to a complete halt of production and it is not a reduction, we interpret as mass layoffs,” – said Alexander Shishkin.
The company’s management has refused to comment on the upcoming layoffs. Due to the current situation, the factory workers are planning to organize a protest next Saturday.
