Authorities concede to non-state union
Mogilev region administration of Bobruisk Joint Stock Company "Belshina" is not against the merger of the factory organization of the Belarusian Independent Trade Union to the collective agreement. Become a member of her community achieves almost a year. Unionists believe that the administration's position affected the approach of the elections.
The community has already performed a party collective agreement that protects the interests of the ordinary. Without the consent of the community administration now can bring disciplinary proceedings against members of the independent trade union. Since the tariff agreement was saved twice from the penalty chairman of the community Michael Vstsinovicha.
To become a member of the collective agreement, Ustsinovich administration has already sent the required documents.
"In my fir
st reply, they wrote that after the submission of documents confirming the legal status of your organization, we are ready to engage in dialogue with you. This, of course, is connected with the elections." And the fact that the collective agreement has earned — this, of course, is related to the elections. Need to see what we are good and hold on the law and collective agreement is executed and canceled orders. Of course, this is due to the election. "
In the administration "Belshina" have confirmed that they are willing to consider the possibility of participation of the community of independent trade union in the collective agreement. The main ideologue of the company Alexander Kozlov disagrees, however, with the fact that it changed the attitude of the leadership election of the enterprise to the independent trade union.
