STATEMENT

of the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia

 

The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia expresses concern and anxiety in connection with the aggression of Azerbaijan and the outbreak of military actions  on September 27 along the entire line of contact with Artsakh. The consequences of such large-scale actions, shelling of peaceful cities and villages can have unpredictable consequences.

The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia condemns the aggressive, criminal actions of the Azerbaijani authorities, which led to victims among the civilian population, numerous destruction and expresses support for the heroic people of Artsakh.

 Azerbaijan's behavior clearly shows that the authorities of the country are not ready for peace.

Today many countries of the world condemn the aggression of Azerbaijan and its attempt to invade the Republic of Artsakh. The current alarming situation requires an immediate cessation of all military actions, recognition of the right of Armenians to live peacefully on their land.

We hope that the United Nations, the European Court of Human Rights and other international organizations will take measures against the continuation of large-scale offensive actions by Azerbaijan and the establishment of peace in the region.

APPEAL

by the  Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia on  Labour Day  MAY 1

 

 The current situation in the Republic of Armenia, as well as all around the world, caused by the spread of the new coronavirus COVID-19, has caused enormous damage to the country's economy and labour market.

 The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia is convinced that by strengthening solidarity and cooperation, applying an effective social dialogue, it is possible to overcome all emerging problems and ensure the effectiveness of measures to protect the health of workers.

 We must move forward with decisive steps, apply joint efforts in the fight against the insidious virus, while preparing for possible new risks of the pandemic.

 At the height of the crisis, when life in many areas was suspended, some workers lost their jobs, some lost their incomes, low-paid workers, workers working for a daily wage, and the most vulnerable sections of the population were especially affected.

The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia welcomes those employers who managed to save jobs and salaries of workers during this difficult time.

 The paramount task today is the application of numerous measures to prevent the spread of the pandemic, and each employee must work in a safe environment, be provided with all personal protective equipment and hygiene.

 We consider it necessary to ensure the right to collective bargaining for all employees, implement the principles of decent work and prevent discrimination between women and men in the workplace.

 We believe in the unshakable will and hard work of our people, in their optimism.

 The Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia congratulate all workers on the occasion of Labour Day, especially those at the forefront of the fight against the pandemic.

Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia                                Eduard Tumasyan
