The “Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi Company” has taken the decision to trasfer their 200 emoplyees who work at the “Zuun Tsankh” mine, to the Chinese company “TTJVCo”. At the end of last week, the director of the “Ev Sanaanii Negdel” trade union at “Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi” set himself on fire during a press conference, as a protest on the company decision.
Today other members of the trade union met with the “Mongolian Trade Union” (MTU), and took the decision to co-operate.
As part of the agreement, the MTU has formed a working group to support the 200 employees of “Erdenes Tavan Tolgoi”. The working group will provide legal support and, if necessary, an attorney.
