Workers end block of Kosovo District offices

8/25/2013 1:22:00 PM

GRACANICA - The workers of socially-owned companies in Gracanica on Saturday night ended their block of the Kosovo District offices in the town after they received one of their seven outstanding allowances. One of the protest organizers, Momcilo Nedeljkovic, said the workers decided to end the block because they received one of the three payments they were demanding. 

 Nedeljkovic added that the workers will resume their protest if the other two payments do not come through by September 5. Several thousand workers in Kosovo, who lost their jobs after the arrival of UNMIK and KFOR to the province following the NATO bombing of 1999, are receiving financial assistance from the state in the amount of RSD 11,000 a month.

 The workers have been blocking the Kosovo District offices for the past several days protesting seven months of late payments, and the Kosovska Mitrovica - Raska road was also blocked for three days at the village of Donje Jarinje near the administrative crossing with central Serbia.
