Workers at the waste management company in Vidin launch a strike on account of unpaid salaries.

Ot of all 114, 103 people have started the effective protest Wednesday, as reported by the Bulgarian National Radio.

They have not received their salaries for 8 months now. Additionally, the agreement between the syndicates and the employer for the payment of the delayed amounts has not been complied with.

''The situation is unbearable,'' said Snejanka Nikolova, who has been working for the company over the past twelve years now. ''There is nothing to eat. We are gathering our last coins to get a loaf of bread in the store. We just can't take it any more.''

For the period of the strike, only the areas around hospitals, mnedical facilities, schools and kidergartens will be cleaned.

''With all the taxes and pension insurances, salaries that are due to be paid in Vidin, the sum amounts to BGN 750, 000,'' said waste management company representative Valeri Yordanov. ''The cash payments that our company still needs to receive from the Vidin municipality is BGN 1,4 M.''

The Vidin municipality denied owing money to the waste management company. It was, however, stated that the money the municipality has transferred have probably been stopped at the National Revenue Agency, on account of unpaid taxes.
