Borjomi suspends operation of both factories in Georgia
Borjomi mineral water company in central Georgia has announced the temporary suspension of operations at two of its plants to ‘avoid provocations staged by activists’.
About 350 workers of bottling factories have gone on strike, demanding higher salaries and better working conditions.
The statement released by Borjomi reads that despite the strike they did not plan to stop operations, but they have made a decision after they have observed ‘the certain illegal activities’ against the vehicles travelling to the plants.
"As a company with a high level of responsibility we are suspending the operations at both of the plants to avoid provocations staged by the activists of the trade union that endanger the health and safety of people," Agenda.ge cited the statement as saying.
The company has meanwhile noted that it is ready to restore its operations as soon as 'the illegal activities are over’.
