Igor Zinkevych, Liubomyr Bosanevych, Serhiy Ivakh, Igor Telishevsky, Igor Dyadkovych, Myroslav Danylkiv are the MPs of the Lviv City Council, who were involved in the fight. Other lawmakers decided to check the information on ATE-1 drivers’ salary – whether they are paid after they fulfill the plan and pay debts.
Besides, it was revealed that the head of the enterprise pays salary on two statements the cashiers have if the drivers pay debts according to the plan and waste of fuel.
At 9.30 a.m., the MPs arrived at the enterprise, but security guards refused to let them in. When the lawmakers tried to make their way inside, the fight started.
One of the guards said that the door was damaged and he had his arm broken in a fight. Igor Telyshevsky’s jacket was ripped.
The MPs demanded not to impede them, threatening criminal liability. Finally, after a 15-minute fight, the security let the MPs in - along with the representatives of the Community Council of the Lviv City Council Transport Administration and journalists.
Orest Khamula, the director of the local utility service refuted the information on unpaid salaries for the drivers, calling it 'a provocation'.
'It is a fake piece of information that ATE-1 allegedly does not pay full salary and pays on two statements. Such actions and words are provocative. A person who spreads this information is a fictional character who does not work for the enterprise. Some people don’t like that we set monitoring sensors of fuel levels in buses,' Khamula noted.
As he said, the enterprise purchased monitoring sensors of fuel levels thorough the ProZorro system last year. They set such sensors in 30% of their buses.
