This autumn Mr. Loktseu was punished with arrest for the organization of a People's Assembky in Babruisk. After this he started facing trouble at work, especially after his brass was visited by the KGB. The administration lost its patience after he tried to establish a primary unit of the Independent Trade Union of Radio Electronic Industry at work.

“As I have recently learned from my colleagues, my boos, Siarhei Khropau, collected signatures for my dismissal,” says Kanstantsin Loktseu. “As far as I know, his relatives signed the paper, two people refused to do it. Only nine people work in the boiling-house of the kinder-garten “Mechta”. Of course, if they just need to fire me, these signatures are unnecessary. I came up to the boss and asked him openly whether he was collecting signatures. He said that he was just executing an order of the higher officials who told him to prepare an office memorandum in order to save himself,” commented Mr. Loktseu.

“When I was employed I have an agreement with the director that I won't have a stable time-schedule. The main condition was that the boiling-house will work. I put it in order, and there were no pretensions to my work. So, the administration seems to have no need in good workers, the main criterion for them is the lack of initiative,” he added.
