Countries at Risk : Belarus

The ITUC has been campaigning to support independent trade union movement of Belarus, which is under heavy repressions from the regime of President Lukashenko. The violation of trade union rights led to ILO Commission of Inquiry and economic sanctions from the EU and US.

The PERC is supporting targeted priority campaign actions of its affiliates in case of violation of trade union or workers’ rights by governments or employers or mounting political and public pressure to change national policies or legislation. These campaigns are targeted at specific situations and time periods where international solidarity can make a difference.
