In 1970 Trud newspaper devoted article to Norilsk metallurgists

April 13, 2021

In 1970, the editors held the newspaper Tuesday in Norilsk.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. All-Union Tuesdays in Trud were originally called Stahanov’s ones and were held in different cities of the Soviet Union. On Tuesdays, in the presence of the newspaper, the party and trade union organizations representatives, people of various professions shared their experience and work results. Later, the action was called All-Union Tuesdays-seminars.

In 1970, at the initiative of the USSR Ministry of Nonferrous Metallurgy, the seminar was held in Norilsk. The prerequisite was the transition of the combine to gas and the first high-speed heavy-weight smelting at the Copper plant, carried out in September. The smelting with full copper reduction took only 55 minutes. No one in the country had ever achieved such records before.

The melting was carried out by the Hero of Socialist Labor Alexander Sheremetov’s team.

A famous steelmaker from the Moscow region, also Hero of Socialist Labor, Vasily Postnikov, joined the foreman at the action organized by the ministry and the newspaper’s editorial board. The ‘melting of friendship’ at the anode furnace took place in the presence of the press. The experience of Alexander Sheremetov’s team was recommended to be extended to all metallurgical enterprises of the country.

This year the newspaper Trud celebrates its 100th anniversary.
