Head of independent trade-union organization at "Granit" plant appeals against his dismissal
Aleh Stakhayevich, elected chairman of the newly
established trade union organization at the "Granit" enterprise in
Mikashevichy, filed an appeal with the Luninets District Court to get
rehabilitated at work.
At the same time, activists of the independent trade-union organizations applied to the Ministry of Architecture and Building (to which "Granit" is subordinated) with the request to oblige the enterprise to provide room for the office of the trade-union organization so that it could be registered with the state.
Bear in mind that about 200 workers of "Granit" had left the official trade-union at the end of 2011 and stated their intention to establish a primary unit of the Belarusian Independent Trade Union. The administration of the enterprise creates obstacles to the registration of the organization and simultaneously pressurizes its activists.
Besides Aleh Stakhayevich, another activist, Liudmila Litsvinka, has been fired so far.
