432 workers of the Agara Sugar Factory lost jobs

22.03.2019

 
Lado Bitchashvili, Shida Kartli 

Production of the Agara sugar was once again suspended because of high expenditures in the Sugar Factory and disability of the Georgian sugar to compete with the imported sugar. 

432 workers of the Agara Sugar Factory went home for uncertain period of time. One of the workers said, they are in obscure situation. 

“We cannot compete with the imported sugar; local production costs more expensive and in this light the investor, the owner of the factory, decided to stop operation of the factory. We, 432 workers, are dismissed for uncertain period of time. They paid compensation for four months and we will wait that period; maybe the production will restore; otherwise we may resume our protest demonstrations,” the worker Giorgi Tsiskadze said. 

The Agara Sugar Factory several times suspended working in the past. Last time it happened in February, 2018, which was followed by permanent protest demonstrations of the workers. Finally the factory resumed working but the general director of the Agara Sugar Factory Alkhan Alizade decided to stop production of the sugar one year later too.
