Dear comrades! The Kazakhstan union of trade unions “Amanat” fully supports the appeal of the World Federation of Trade Unions to its affiliates around the world in the context of the announcement of the fight against coronavirus. We fully agree with the stated list of requirements for national governments.
A state of emergency has been introduced in Kazakhstan. The cities of Astana and Almaty are closed for quarantine.
In these difficult conditions, the capitalists use every opportunity to get rid of trade unions and reduce payments.
We advocated the preservation of jobs and guaranteed payments. And also a twofold increase in the remuneration of medical workers.
We carefully monitor the preservation of the rights of workers. We will not allow the capitalists to use the pandemic situation for their own purposes to destroy the working class!
We all need solidarity and a united working front. We ask the trade union “Amanat” to include in the general action of solidarity!
With fraternal greetings!
The Commonwealth of Trade Unions of Kazakhstan “Amanat”
