‘Most importantly, negotiations between the employer and trade unions, miners are continuing. That is why emotions are not needed here, and we just need to wait for some result’, the speaker of the Majilis Nurlan Nigmatulin said to journalists.

Deputy Azat Peruashev also said that we should wait for the results of negotiations between the employer and the miners. ‘The employer is also involved in this, so let's wait for what the negotiations will lead. I can say that as part of the discussion of the subsoil law, we said that we will increase the content, including wages of our workers’, he commented.

The deputy of Kazakh Parliament Serik Sapiev noted that the deputies are worried about the fate of the mine workers and making negotiations with them. ‘We are also worried, but we see that the representatives are dealing with these issues, so we are also keeping a contact’, Serik Sapiyev said.

Recall, starting from December 11, the miners of ArcelorMittal Temirtau stayed underground, because of demanding higher wages and improving working conditions on the mines.
