Belarús - Employers refusing to negotiate with representative unions

The Bobruisk tractor parts company refused to permit Mikhail Kovalkov, the leader of the company union affiliated to the Belarusian Free Trade Union (SPB), to participate in the collective bargaining commission for the conclusion of the company agreement for 2016-2019. Similarly, during the negotiation of the 2017-2020 collective agreement of the GrodnoAzot chemical company, the company representative of the Belarusian Independent Trade Union (BNP) was deliberately excluded from the meetings of the collective bargaining commission and his proposals were never discussed. As a result, the GrodnoAzot collective agreement for 2017-2020 contains none of the BNP proposals and excludes BNP union members from its scope.
