Appeal by the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia in Connection With the Day of International Workers’ Solidarity 1 May

 

 

  Dear friends,

  The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia congratulates  on the occasion of Labor Day  and  confirms  its commitment to the principles of decent work and determination to strengthen the international solidarity of the people of labor.

According to the tradition, on that day  trade unions appeal to  solidarity and unity in order to establish   social  justice and to implement   the principles of  decent work.

On May 1, 2018  Workers' Solidarity Day is celebrated  all over the world, even in the conditions of political and economic tense and unstable events.

Such situation is also being watched  in Armenia now, where there is a decline in employees'  income and socio-economic indexes, resulting in poverty and unemployment, particularly among young people. Therefore, it is not surprising that on  these days Armenian youth stands for the  improvement of the existing socio-political, economic and moral-psychological situation.

The  CTUA hopes that the events taking place in Yerevan and in the regions of the country will not cross the line of peaceful actions, so it calls for restraint and commitment  to the spirit of national solidarity.

  The CTUA  believes that  existing problems should be solved solely  by the unconditional implementation of the laws of the Republic of Armenia.

 On the occasion of Labor Day the CTUA  once again congratulates trade union members, all workers, wishes  everyone a decent job for the benefit  of Armenia.

STATEMENT
of the IV Congress of the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia
on the occasion of the World Day for Decent Work

 

 On October 7 trade unions around the world mark the World Day for Decent Work. They try to draw the attention of their governments and employers to the need for creating healthy and safe working environment, to fair wages and social protection issues, for developing a system of social dialogue and social partnership and for providing workers with guarantees to freely exercise their rights.
  Decent work means not only the creation of jobs, but also the improvement of working conditions and decent remuneration for it. These are the key issues in the activity of the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia.
 This year the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia stands under the slogans "Decent Work", "Fair Wages", "Social Dialogue in the Relationship Between Employer and Employee" and "Development of Sustainable Social Partnership".
 The CTUA stands against poverty, unemployment, social polarization and migration, which undermine the conception, role and value of decent work.
  The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia will continue to raise the issues of adopting legal acts related to the minimum wage, determining the composition and structure of the minimum consumer basket and indexation of the minimum wage.
 The CTUA together with the branch republican unions will consistently implement the idea of decent work, which implies a decent reward for labor, a healthy and safe working environment that will help ensure the well-being of workers and their families.
