(ANSA) - Rome, September 4 - Workers in the Nuraxi Figus
mine in Sardinia began work again on Tuesday after agreeing to
end a week-long strike in anticipation of government and company
meetings slated for Friday.
The coalmine is at the centre of a high-profile industrial
dispute in which workers are asking the government to go
ahead with plans for clean-coal technology and CO2 storage
that they say would give them greater employment security.
Miners working for the Carbonia-Iglesis coal company who
barricaded themselves underground for eight days in front of a
storage room holding 690 kilograms of explosives and 1,221
detonators said in a press conference last Wednesday that they
were "desperate" and willing to take "extreme measures".
On Tuesday a delegation of miners led by union
representatives Sandro Mereu and Massimiliano Esposito
participated in the commemoration of the Buggerru miners who
organized the first miners' trade union protest in Italy in
1904.
"It is our duty to participate in this day to commemorate
the sacrifices made by those miners and their important
contribution to the trade union struggles and the defense of
workers' rights," Mereu told the press.
