Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant publishes Employee Encyclopedia

January 27, 2014. An encyclopedia dedicated to the employees of Chelyabinsk Tractor Plant (ChTZ, a member enterprise of Uralvagonzavod) was published recently.

According to the corporation’s press service, the Book on ChTZ People that was published by Chelyabinsk House of the Press, is an encyclopedia-style reference book on the enterprise employees with biographical sections on the workers who actually put up the plant, on the Great Patriotic War veterans, on workers with government awards, on outstanding service employees who became well known in Chelyabinsk Region and in Russia, on social and political figures, on managers and white-collar workers.

‘The book was embarked upon at the initiative of the chairman of ChTZ Long Service Employee Council Nikolai Lozhchenko, and took over a decade to put together. The authors of the book pointed out during the presentation of the encyclopedia that some 900,000 people were employed by the plant during its operation. It is impossible to tell a story about each and every one of them, but the board of editors did come up with about 4,000 short biographies, 1,750 of which have been presented in the first volume. The rest will be published in the second volume,’ the press service reports.
