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.

STATEMENT

 

 Due to the rapid and wide spread of the new coronavirus (COVID-19)  the whole world, and the Republic of Armenia  among others, are forced to take the necessary and urgent measures to protect the health of workers, prevent the spread of infection at the workplace and to avoid the consequences of a possible economic crisis .

 Today it is difficult to predict how the new coronavirus will turn out, what economic damage it will cause to the state and employers, which can directly affect the standard of living of workers and their families.

 In the current situation  the Confederation of Trade Unions of Armenia continues to fulfill its mission of representing and protecting  workers’ labour interests and rights, as well as provides  online consultations.

 We propose during this difficult time, by joint efforts, to preserve jobs, wages, consider a forced absence from work respectful, create a flexible work schedule for workers with young children, and also offer workers infected with coronavirus (COVID-19) and for those at risk of infection, find the possibility of providing them with paid leave or providing them with temporary disability benefits.

 We hope that representatives of workers and employers will demonstrate high social responsibility in the current situation, make mutual concessions and in this case, by joint efforts we can overcome the challenges of today.
