In its opinion, checks of safety of working conditions - last argument of the authorities in struggle against those who has refused to participate in municipal competitions . After the mayoralty has refused to listen to our offers, people have simply spat on the power and go without any competitions. Reports on us make, but the legal department of trade union with them successfully struggles: from 2 thousand Reports which we have appealed against in court from the beginning of so-called transport reform, we have lost case only in 13 cases. Probably, try to grope other our weak places - Vladimir Zanin has assumed.
