Independent Trade Union In Salihorsk Holds Protest Action


The activists are protesting against the local executive committee.

The local authorities in Salihorsk twice declined the appeal of the workers of the Remmontazhstroy trust to register the primary organization of the Belarusian independent trade union. In protest, local activists are now holding a rally at the local “Stroitel” stadium, Belsat reports.

The support of the picket has already been announced by the Belarusian Congress of Democratic Trade Unions, and the Independent Trade Union REP. The local authorities explain the refusal to register the primary branch of the Belarusian independent trade union with incorrectly executed documents, but say that they are not obliged to explain where the error is.

Belaruskali is among the top three global potash exporters. Last year, the company's production exceeded 46 million tons. Salt reserves in the Salihorsk region are estimated at 7.5 billion tons - this means that the enterprise will have enough for more than 160 years.
