Tajik Workers Win Case Against Russian Company

YEKATERINBURG, Russia -- Tajik guest workers in the Russian city of Yekaterinburg have won a case against a local construction company.

Farrukh Mirzoev, a leader of the Tajik community in Yekaterinburg, told RFE/RL's Tajik Service that the prosecutor's office in Yekaterinburg's Lenin Raion ruled that the SKA construction company must pay overdue salaries for the last four months to some 300 workers from Tajikistan.

The workers began a strike last week to demand their wages. The company reportedly owes some 30 million rubles (more than $1 million) to the workers, Mirzoev told RFE/RL.
