About 40 workers from the Chalkidiki mines set up camp outside the Productive Reconstruction Ministry in Mesogeion, requesting the minister to take the necessary steps so they will return to their jobs as soon as possible.
A Committee of four workers met with the official Minister of Productive Reconstruction, John Golia, and the Deputy Minister, K. Mousourouli.
According to them, a focal point of developments in the case of ressuming the mining activities of “Hellas Gold” is the trial of the new appeal to the State Council, submitted by the company and the workers, seeking annulment of the decision of the former Minister Panos Skourletis. This was also pointed out by the administrative leadership of YPAPEN.
Until then the employees declare their intention to remain outside the ministry, pending the hearing procedure at the Suspension Committee of the Council of State, set for the morning (09.30) Tuesday, September 15. The actual trial of the applications for annulment has been set for October 2.
It should be also noted that the case of the mines has issued a series of decisions the Council of State, in confirming the validity of the total investment as a single, undivided project.
