The Union “Gazette” officially announced the owner of the edition Ivan Eremin a number of requirements, including not to cut wages and staff and to ensure that the wording of ethical standards. If demands aren’t met soon, the editors will consider the possibility of a strike.The trade Union of journalists “Sheets”, which included more than half of the editorial staff of the newspaper and website, has nominated the owner of the edition Ivan Eremin and CEO Mikhail Nelyubin 12 requirements, stated in the letter of the Union (a copy is in “Kommersant”). The editorial office demands:”the Management has performed only one item of the remote work. All the others are not even willing to discuss reconciliation Commission”,— said the Chairman of the Union of Bela Lyauv. After a change of owner, CEO and editor-in-chief in the newspaper censorship began, people began to leave, and the remaining employees “reasonably fear for violations of their labor rights,” she explains.Several interlocutors of the edition told “Kommersant” that Ivan Eremin, who is still engaged in the regional media, was instructed to prepare proposals on reducing the cost of the newspaper to the former General Director Gleb Prozorov. Mr. Prozorov has resigned at the end of June, and left on its place Michael Nelyubin said to the Union that the management of the publication is ready to consider demands only in September when will the Board of Directors. “B” is awaiting review by Ivan Eremin.Conflict is caused by the personality of the editor-in-chief Andrew Shmarova, reminiscent of a labour lawyer and member of the expert Council of the Committee on labor and social policy of the state Duma Pavel Andreev, advising the editors of “Vedomosti”: “it Was a lot of deletions of publications, the ban on their exit, one of the articles Shmarov sent the conclusion of a third-party lawyer, although the staff attorney did not have her comments. The newspaper is changing”. “Journalists will go on strike if demands are not met in the near future”,— said “Kommersant” Pavel Andreev. If demands are not heard, the Union reserves the right to declare a strike, confirms Bela Lyauv.Part of the Union’s demands, “Vedomosti” employment is nature indirectly and is “likely to be ignored,” said the Five Stones Consulting partner Alexander Karpukhin. For collective labour dispute must pass through the stage of conciliation procedures, which is at the rapid development of events takes a week, a full strike required a staff meeting with a quorum of two-thirds and the number of difficult technicalities, he points out, “This is a very complicated bureaucratic procedure, any error in which will lead subsequently to the court’s recognition of the strike illegal.” “The unions come up with creative methods of strikes — for example, on strike only ��part of key employees of the division and blocks of the other units, in fact stopping the whole enterprise. But in modern Russian history there is only one example of a successful large-scale strike — series at the Ford plant in Vsevolozhsk in 2005-2008. If the head strikes are ideological and charismatic leaders willing to put everything at stake, it is quite possible a real dialogue with the administration. Otherwise, it has enough resources for the termination of protest actions (from the banal to disciplinary action for Union members to challenge the fact of creation of the Union). Moreover, bestwomen enterprise there is often a local civil war between strikers and those who are excluded because of this work”,— says the lawyer.While collective labour disputes are not too common in Russia, this is a very effective delivery mechanism of the employees of their position to the employer, the head of the employment law practice of AB KIAP Julia Kirpikova. “The strike can be effective if the employer refuses to implement the agreements. If nothing was agreed then to motivate the employer to fulfill the requirements of the Union by the strike is very difficult,” she said.Anna Afanasyeva
