The 83 Chinese workers stuck in a recent labor dispute in Mongolia will head towards their homeland tonight after receiving train tickets from their contractor at a construction site in Ulan Bator, according to the Xi'an-based Huashang newspaper.
Hu Guangli, one of the workers, said he has also received 5-thousand-yuan (805 US dollars) subsidy from a domestic property company named "Yuansheng", who is in charge of the construction project in Ulan Bator.
The company in Weinan city of northwestern China's Shaanxi province, was accused of failing to pay the Chinese workers salaries, worth over 3 million yuan (480 thousand US dollars) in total.
On Sunday, Chinese Embassy in Mongolia announced on its official website that the Chinese workers will be sent back home soon and the dispute will be settled through a judicial channel.
The embassy has launched a consular protection mechanism after 10 Chinese workers at the construction site filed a complaint on July 9.
83 of the 95 workers involved in the case were introduced to work in Mongolia through a labor agent in Sichuan, while the other 12 was hired locally. Most workers come from provinces including Shaanxi, Hebei and Sichuan as well as Inner Mongolia autonomous region.
Right now, the embassy says an in-depth investigation is underway.
The labor dispute was first posted online over the weekend, as a netizen was seeking help from local authorities in Shaanxi province.
