We wrote that from now on in Nikolaev the large-scale strike of drivers of trams and trolleybuses had to begin. And it began - today the DEPOT weren't left by any vehicle which is on balance of KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans".
The debt on a salary in 4 million hryvnias compelled staff of the Nikolaev municipal enterprise "Nikolayevelektrotrans" will resort to radical measures, and to stop all city electrotransport.
As workers of KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans" told our correspondent, they don't get paid since March of this year and intend to strike till that time while to them won't pay a salary in full volume and for everything month.
According to workers of KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans", it is the first strike in the history of the Nikolaev DEPOT of such scale.
We managed to communicate to the director of KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans" Andrey Kondratyev. He reported that the debt of the state to the enterprise (and it is subventions for transportation of passengers of preferential category) makes 13 million 512 thousand UAH of the state budget
According to the director of the municipal enterprise, a salary could not pay both for January, and for February, but found a way out - spent money allocated with the City Council from the local budget for a free pass of the Nikolaev school students.
"According to the decision of city council 2 million 400 thousand UAH at the expense of which we and paid a salary for the first two months of this year were allocated. The enterprise now has no "cash". We pay for the electric power on "clearing"", - A. Kondratyev declared.
He also told that on June 24, in many cities of Ukraine including in Nikolaev, "electrotrances" held a precautionary action - for 5 min. Stopped electrotransport movements, but it didn't work.
While we communicated with the director of KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans", to it the secretary of the Nikolaev city council V. Korenyugin called and invited A. Kondratyev in the Executive Committee of the City Soviet of People's Deputies to try to resolve current situation.
It should be noted that V. Korenyugin was very strongly indignant that someone dismisses hearings that in everything the Party of Regions which doesn't want to give money any there is guilty. Really, and here the Party of Regions, after all heads the government Yu. Tymoshenko. But on a place of the secretary of city council would cost worries first of all not about image of the party which it represents, and to think of how to leave current situation. The Party of Regions has the majority in the Nikolaev city council therefore people and will make a claim to those who is in power in Nikolaev, instead of in the capital.
The emergency meeting at which the question on a situation with KP "Nikolayevelektrotrans" will be considered is planned on 14.00. Probably, the decision "to throw" part of city subventions on repayment of debt to workers "Nikolayevelektrotrans" will be made.
It should be noted that at this enterprise about 1250 people are registered, and, work with families, and it means that people remain, simply, out-of-pocket on existence.
We hope soon a situation to be resolved.
