"International Labour Organization on June 15 published an opinion, which states Belarus do not do anything to protect a number of major workers’ rights in the matter of freedom of association, "- said in a statement.
In connection with this June 21 Belarus will excluded from the Generalized System of Preferences of the European Union. This decision comment policy and trade unionists.
The decision of the European Commission commented Chairman of the Minsk city association official trade union federation, Nikolai Belanovsky:
"I, as the Belarusian, negative attitude to solving the Euro Union regarding our country. Indeed, many states in the world in which simply have no rights and workers and trade unions. These measures are not used. I believe that this decision is dictated by the policy of double standards that which relates to Belarus. We are interested in Belarus were democratic principle that trade unions have the right to. And you can read. Shaw Belarus goes in the direction of strengthening the status of the working man. In including and improve its rights. It seems to me that the Belarusians went out and brought strength to get out of this situation. Well, I think that the government may be, to see again this dilemma. And if there are unresolved questions, it will solve them. "
But the world chairman of the Belarusian Congress of Democratic Trade Unions Alexander Yarashuk:
"I believe that the decision was predictable, especially if we understand the discussion at the conference the International Labour Organization. And in a special paragraph in the resolution stated that in Bearusi vests unimportant progress in the implementation of the ILO Governing Body. And that union rights situation in Belarus remains severe. This is the case when the Belarusian government except for some incriminating himself "
Comment co-chair of the organizing committee of the party "Belarusian Christian Democracy" Pavel Seviarynets:
"The decision of the European Commission rightly. Belarus really violates the rights of workers, as no European country. Because the decision to deprive preferences have fully justified. Coupled with that, hope for some exchanges on preferences for the regime such hopes ended in failure. Is will try to make new bridges with the West, or expect a new, another turn to the East. Belarus it did not change fundamentally. Mode, which was and remains such. How should I have to fight, and so is the need persists. In the end, it will not be resolved in Geneva, not in Brussels, not in Washington, not in Moscow. All venture in Belarus. "
