As protests of mountaineers continue in the four ore mines in Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhya region, protesters and the mines' administration turned to the government. The State Agency for Employment ran service checks into their appeals, as both sides claimed that violations in the work process were allowed.

On September 23, mountaineers asked the local MPs of Kryvyi Rih city council to pass the appeal to the Ukrainian Parliament and the government, asking to raise their salaries and to resume inferiority payments.

Andriy Ryabika, the Chief of Control Section in the mining industry of Kryvyi Rih Mining Department claimed that the committee of the State Agency for Employment detected 190 violations in the area of work hygiene and on-the-job safety. According to him, both administration of the mines and miners themselves are considered guilty in these violations.

According to further checks, some workers did not get part of their salary in time. Besides, there were cases when the mine's owner changed the conditions of payment, which affected the work conditions. That violation was documented as well.

Earlier, the administration of Kryvyi Rih-based iron ore mines refused to raise the salary; so, the miners continued the strike under the ground.
