VSEVOLOZHSK, Leningrad Region, November 2 (Itar-Tass) — A warning strike has begun at the Ford-Vsevolozhsk car factory in Leningrad Region. Third shift personnel suspended work early Wednesday over their disagreement with the conditions for work and rest suggested by the employer -- the Ford Motor Company. Alexei Etmanov, Chairman of the Interregional Automotive Workers Union, has told Itar-Tass that two one-hour warning strikes are to be called on Wednesday. He said the workers had to take this step because of the employer's unwillingness to to respond to the work collective on matters concerning imporvement in conditions for work and rest. "The strike was rendered unavoidable precisely by the employer's unwillingness immediately to sign an agreement within the scope of the existing collective labour disputes, along with taking concrete steps to rectify the obtaining situation, and by the employer's refusal immediately to organize a meeting of the third-shift workers and address them," Etmanov said. On one of workdays, third-shift workers have to toil for ten hours.
