Art Festival in Chiatura

In the late 19th century, the Georgian poet Akaki Tsereteli found deposits of manganese in the area around Chiatura, which became the main industry for the town during the 20th century. It's a history about hard work and terrible conditions in the mines, but also a history about the creation of an extensive system of cable cars. In the 50th, due to the hilly landscape with steep slopes, Stain ordered the creation of a cable car system for the workers to efficiently travel from the town to the mines.

Appeal to the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs

According to the official statistics of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, 41 people died at their workplaces, while 61 sustained injuries during 2014. In response to this, the Ministry of Health, which is also a Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs/Protection, has put forward a work monitoring initiative. According to this initiative, only the companies which themselves requested monitoring would be checked and this would have a recommendatory, not inspectionary character.  The presented model of ‘’Work Inspection’’, has drawn relevant criticism from the trade/labor unions, as well as from different groups of the society.
