According to Abdigalil Tashmatov, the representative of the Central Committee of Mining and Metallurgical Trade Union in Jalal-Abad oblast, workers were offered to renew the contracts for the next term with the condition of reducing the salary by about a third. However, workers refused to reduce wages.
