The administration of the building organization “Pramzhylbud” informed the trade-union activist that his labor contract, expiring on 10 February, wouldn't be extended. No reasons were given, but Aliaksei Paulouski knows them: “I have always struggled with the administration of the organization to provide better conditions of work for workers. We work in anti-sanitary conditions, our working places are unattested. Masons are allowed to retire only when they turn 60 years old, but must be allowed to do it at 55, as the conditions of their work are considered to be harmful for the health.”

Moreover, thanks to Paulouski's efforts and a collective appeal of workers, a regional check-up came to the last object constructed by “Pramzhylbud”.

The trade-union activist intends to continue his struggle for his right to work.”Our independent trade-union will contact the investor (a Lithuanian firm) and inform it that labor rights are violated and trade-union activists are dismissed at the object whose construction it finances. We will ask the investor to influence this situation,” says Aliaksei Paulouski.
