VLADIVOSTOK. 16 October. VOSTOK-MEDIA. Today Association of Trade Union Territorial Branches at the Russian Far East officially announced:
Trials of the Russian Industry and Commerce Union to shorten lawful responsibilities of the employers while dismissing their employees are aimed at increasing benefits at the expense of the employees’ decreasing salaries.
Present “economic” policy is aimed at decreasing social responsibilities of the employers and does not contribute to increase in labour productivity: low salaries of employees’ majority, deprivation of major ways of social protection through the Fund of Social Insurance including health-improving rest in the sanatoriums, shortening unemployment dowries, humiliatingly low pensions of retiring workers and etc.
Proposed measure goes against workers’ rights and may lead to a system crisis of social policy and undermine stability in Russia.
Association of Trade Union Territorial Branches is worried by a proposal to lay responsibility of paying unemployment dowries on the government and demands obligatory insurance in case of lost job and recreation of an employment fund.
