Concern Kalina’s workers set up trade union

8 October 2009 (12:23)

Trade union activists are going to picket Yekaterinburg-based office buildings of Concern Kalina and Uralplastik on World Action Day, the spokesperson for Sverdlovsk Region Trade Unions Federation reports.

‘In both companies, the workers are trying to set up trade unions despite the management’s disapproval. Kalina’s top executives have always been against employee self-organization, even though the right to join a trade union is guaranteed to every Russian citizen by the federal legislation. The management must remember, however, that it’s a free country that has no slaves doing only what their self-appointed master tells them to do,’ Chairman of the Federation Andrei Vetluzhskikh says.
