STATEMENT  OF THE  CONFEDERATION OF TRADE UNIONS OF ARMENIA

IN THE CONNECTION  WITH THE FORTHCOMING RISE OF ELECTRICITY PRICES

 

  Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia on behalf of  its  union members involved in 700 trade union organizations of 20 branch republican unions expressed their concern about  the upcoming  rise in electricity prices.

  The price increase will inevitably lead to a deepening of a social crisis which is usually followed by decline in living standards of workers, their families and the entire population, as well as increasing the number of low-income families.

  Increase in electricity prices from 1 August 2014  and followed it higher prices for various commodities have led to numerous problems facing the population. In Armenia, where a third of the population is poor, a new increase in electricity prices will lead to increased poverty.

  Over the past few years as a result of multiple increase of tariffs for gas and electricity price rises for consumer goods and services  could be prevented by applying the necessary mechanisms, such as the adoption of the law "On indexation of wages", whereby it would be possible adjust the purchasing power of the minimum wage.

  The situation is aggravated  by not being  approved  up today the law of composition and structure of the minimum consumer basket, on the basis of which should be determined  the minimum wage, pensions, allowances and other social benefits. The whole complex of problems suggests that today and in the coming years we can hardly cope with the social problems facing the population. Raising the minimum wage and pensions  in  five thousand AMD  can not provide an adequate standard of living and purchasing power of the population.

  Chain price increases could lead to deterioration of not only the workers, but also about 500,000 retirees and 114,000 families receiving family poverty benefits.  Are they able to resist this new price increase, especially in winter, when they are forced to spend the lion's share of their income on heating and other utilities?

  In accordance with Article 34 of the Constitution of the RA  everyone has the right to an adequate living standard  which prevents the continued rise in prices. In this regard, the CTUA attaches great importance to the need to introduce mechanisms for restraining the growth of social tension in the case of a rise  in electricity prices.

Congratulations  of the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia on the occasion of the

70 anniversary of the Victory  in the  Great Patriotic War

                                     

  70 years ago the Soviet people   won in the Great Patriotic War against Nazi Germany. The Soviet Union used all its military capabilities in order to destroy invaders  who  were  a threat not only for the Soviet Union, but also for many European countries.  In this bloody war, the Soviet Union suffered the greatest,  It  lost millions of soldiers fallen on the battle fields, millions died in concentration camps.

  The participation of the Armenian people in the Great Patriotic War  is one of the heroic pages in our history. The contribution of the Armenian  into this  great victory  was  enormous. Marshal Georgy Zhukov said: "In the victory over fascism Armenians, starting from an ordinary soldier and ending with a marshal, immortalized their names with not fading  glory  of brave warriors." The Great Patriotic War was a war for the survival of the entire Armenian nation, it is not surprising that it was attended by about 650 thousand Armenians, both from Soviet Armenia and  from other republics,  about 350,000 of which  were killed.

  May 9 for Armenian people  is also   a  day of liberation of Shushi.

  On this day  we pay tribute to the victims of this terrible and merciless war that gave their lives to secure the future of our country and each of which is worthy  our grateful memory.  The ranks of veterans of the Great Patriotic War are shrinking, and today honoring them  and veterans of the Karabakh war, we wish them   peaceful days,  health and well-being.

  Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia congratulates everyone on the Great Victory and wishes all  a peaceful sky. Current and future  generations will always keep  in their  memory selfless heroism of those who  defended  the honor and dignity of  our motherland.
