Trade union leaders addressed Putin and Lukashenka

The leaders of the largest trade union associations of Russia and Belarus signed an appeal to the rulers of the two countries Vladimir Putin and Aliaksandr Lukashenka.

The letter concerns the decree No 9 On additional measures for the development of the timber processing industry, signed by Lukashenka in the end of December last year. It virtually forbids the workers of the industry to quit their jobs voluntarily.

As the trade unions statement notes, according to that decree the industry workers right to quit is being forbidden, which virtually introduces forced labour in one of the parts of the Union State, - the bkdp.org web-site reports.

The appeal to the rulers of Russian and Belarus was signed by the president of the Labour Confederation of Russia Boris Kravchenko, the chairman of the Federation of Independent Trade Unions of Russia Mikhail Shmakov and the chairman of the Belarusian Congress of Democratic Trade Unions Aliaksandr Jarashuk.

The trade union leaders of the two countries remind that it is impossible to tackle the task of increasing the effectiveness and productivity of labour by the means of forcing workers, rather a directly opposite result may be received.

We are sure, that the ways to solve the problem lie in the very different dimension, - the appeal says. In our opinion, there is no other means in the world to increase the responsibility of workers than economic interest, the stimuli to work effectively and with high productivity. At the same time the Constitution and national legislation, the Convention of the International Labour Organization must be followed strictly.
