After more than a month of work stoppage, Zenica's miners will enter the Raspotočje pit today to continue with production. This news comes after Elektroprivreda approved funds for salary payments for June and July, as well as hot meals for mine employees. It is expected that the miners will receive their salaries in their accounts no later than tomorrow.
Elvedin Avdić, the president of the Zenica mine's union, confirmed to BHRT that the mine accepted this advance from Elektroprivreda under the condition that it monthly produces 35 thousand tons of coal, which requires significant changes in their work. Avdić also emphasized that the mine will concurrently work on a social welfare program for surplus workers.
This news comes as a relief to the employed miners who have been without work and income for the past month. The work stoppage arose due to the mine's financial problems, but now we hope that the situation will gradually improve. The mine is an important source of income and employment in Zenica, and this resumption of production will have positive effects on the local economy.
In recent years, the Zenica mine has faced various difficulties, including financial problems and a decrease in coal demand. However, we hope that the planned changes in the work, together with the social welfare of surplus workers, will help stabilize the mine and keep it competitive in the market.

This situation also highlights the need for long-term plans and measures for the revitalization of the mine and the diversification of the local economy. Relying solely on one sector, such as mining, can be risky as it is susceptible to market changes and declines. Therefore, it is important to invest in other sectors and take steps towards developing a diverse economy.
With the hope that Zenica's mine will recover from recent difficulties, we need to support the employed miners and work towards creating a sustainable and diverse economy in Zenica.
