Protest initiator sacked from “Pinskdreu”
Dzmitry Kudronak, who headed the workers protests
at “Pinskdreu” plant, has been sacked. On 9 August, Dzmitry Kudronak had his last day of work on the veneer and furniture
plant belonging to “Pinskdreu” holding. The worker received his employment
record book with a record “sacked for repeated failures to fulfill his
employment duties without good excuse”, RFE/RL reports.
Dzmitry Kudronak is confident workers will continue to protest.
“This process cannot be stopped. They fired me, but they will not calm down workers. We are creating an organization that will appear at the right time. It will be a surprise for “Pinskdreu” executives,” he said.
Protests on “Pinsdreu” began after workers received low in their opinion wages on 17 July. Many of them applied for leaving the official trade union.
Workers formed a council with its head Dzmitry Kudronak.
