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