Strike at Leningrad NPP postponed

Publish date: January 18, 2000

Strike at Leningrad nuclear power plant has been postponed until Saturday, January 22. The employees of the plant insist on 40 percent salary raise while the administration says that it can manage only 10 percent increase. A new meeting between the conflicting parties is scheduled to take place on Tuesday and, given no compromise is reached, the strike is imminent: The strikers will act by reducing the plant’s energy output down to 50 percent. Leningrad NPP operates on four RBMK-1000 reactors.
