Kazakhstan: Threat against fuel and energy workers union

In partnership with the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC), IndustriALL global union, and the Central Asia Labour Rights Monitoring Mission.

Kazakh authorities continue to put pressure on independent trade unions. In 2017, Kazakhstan dissolved the Confederation of Independent Trade Unions of the Republic of Kazakhstan and a number of its affiliates, and trade union leaders were prosecuted and imprisoned. Now the Trade Union of the Fuel and Energy Industry Workers is under threat. Authorities have filed a lawsuit to suspend the union on the initiative of a number of oil companies; Oil Construction Company, West oil and Bozashy Trans Kurylys, all part of state-owned Kazmunaygaz. Support the independent trade union movement in Kazakhstan and send a message to the Kazakh authorities, urging them to stop pressuring unions and to respect workers' rights.
