Kyrgyzstan: Stop pressure on trade unions

In partnership with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), the International Union of Food Workers (IUF), IndustriALL global union and Building and Wood Workers International (BWI).

Over the past two years, the trade unions of Kyrgyzstan have been fighting against the adoption of the Law "On Trade Unions". The bill significantly restricts the scope of trade union activities, dictates the internal structure of trade unions and places trade unions under the control of state bodies. Trade unions of Kyrgyzstan held protest actions against the adoption of the bill. In response, the authorities, on trumped-up charges, opened criminal cases against the leaders of the protesting trade unions and removed them from their posts. Trade union leaders and activists become targets of arrests, constant interrogations, provocations, and pressure. Union offices and union leaders' homes were ransacked, and union bank accounts seized. Support the demand of the trade unions by sending a message of protest to the President, Government and Parliament of Kyrgyzstan.
