Brest authorities ban a picket for decent work
Brest representatives of the Trade Union of Radio
Electronic Industry applied to the Brest authorities with the request to
authorize a picket by which they intended to mark the World Day for Decent
The picketers intended to draw the public attention to the fact that the Brest region has the lowest average wages among all Belarusian regions and there are no conditions for decent work all over the country.
Predictably enough, the Brest authorities banned the action. In their answer they stated that some festive events related to the Teacher's Day would be held in the park of soldiers-internationalists at the time of the action.
The trade-union representative Aliaksandra Huryna warned that trade union activists would come to the park to see whether it was true.
