About a thousand of people took part in the mass meeting against the reducing of the work places at the Vorkutaugol company. Last week the direction of the company Vorkutaugol stated that the 400 work places (3% of all workers) would be cut down because of the crisis.
      The inhabitants also asked the city council not to increase the community charges in the city because of the difficult financial position of the coalminers and their families. The community charges in Vorkuta are the highest in the North region and all over the country.
      The other one requirement of inhabitants was to remove the widows and families of the deceased coalminers to the South regions. About a hundred families are now waiting for the resettle but did not have enough means for that.

The representative of the company Vorkutaugol stated that the company have to reduce the production because of the crisis and has no reasons to help someones widows.
