Draft law “On labor unions of the Kyrgyz Republic”

A group of Jogorku Kenesh deputies offers to specify the rights of trade unions and establish their responsibilities.

According to the explanatory note, an analysis of the activities of labor unions operating in accordance with the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic “On labor unions” dated October 16, 1998 No. 130, revealed the presence of numerous problems in their activities. In particular, lack of a unified policy in the activities of labor unions, lack of systematic work of the Republican association with sectoral, regional and local labor unions, lack of responsibility of labor unions and its members for decisions made, lack of uniform requirements for the charter of a labor union and explicitly defined rights and obligations of labor unions.

In addition, it is proposed to establish mandatory requirements for charter of labor unions (the organizational structure and the procedure for forming a labor union, the procedure for participation as a member organization), to specify the rights of labor unions, to establish their duties, which are not explicitly provided in the current version of the Law.
