S.Mukashev briefed the President on the current work of the national public organization, process of formation of new labor relations in Kazakhstan, preparation for meetings to hear reports and elect new officials and the regular Congress of the Federation of Trade Unions which is scheduled to take place in summer this year.
It was noted during the meeting that the Federation of Trade Unions will mark its 20th anniversary this year. Throughout this period the support had been provided to the trade unions by the state and the President in person. In 2008, the President launched the republican campaign to conclude collective agreements at the Forum on Social Responsibility held in Zhezkazgan. Owing to this campaign more than 8,000 memoranda had been concluded between employers and the trade unions with participation of state authorities. We had no job reduction and reduction in wages of employees.
“The President approved main directions of the development of trade union movement in Kazakhstan. Due to the support provided by the head of state we solved the issues on social partnership in Kazakhstan,” S.Mukashev stressed.
