60 plants in 20 cities are creating independent trade union primary organisations supported by the Coordination Council Trade Union Online initiative. At Naftan alone, more than 2,500 people left the state operated trade union and more than 500 joined the independent one.

Whole working collectives of Grodno based factories Accent and Conte left the state operated trade unions and are establishing the independent trade union primary organisations. Medics in the capital city created the Minsk City Primary Trade Union Organisation of Healthcare Workers “White Coats”.

The Trade Union Online initiative provides significant assistance in operation and widening the independent trade unions movement. ‘We now have a stable inflow of applications and the dynamics of creation of the primary organisations across the country. We are receiving collective applications, as well. We help people fight for their rights and help them protect themselves from the administrative pressure at their plants’, noted Aliaksandr Yarashuk, Chairman of the Belarusian Congress of the Independent Trade Unions, member of the Coordination Council.
