“I would like to tell you straight: the trade unions are hiding. You must educate and school. You have to combat alcoholism, absenteeism, organize various cultural, sports events. You’ve got no active work underway. I had to give the orders to the sports committee to lay down a proposition – to go to factories, plants, but it is you who should be leading the initiative,” the governor addressed the audience.
He stressed that trade unions have always been solving significant problems during crises.
“They developed different types of mass games to distract people from panicking, alcoholism, crime. We need mass events. Creativity, this is a notion we require. If you mobilize people, find an entertainer each, then a lot of activities can be carried out for the people who work in construction, industrial, transportation companies. They must not sit idle. It is trade unions that should invent activities, and we should follow their lead,” the head of the region noted.
According to Vasily Bochkarev, they must pay special attention to young people.
“[You should] work even harder with young people who are going to start families, or have just started them. How to swaddle a baby, how to feed it – a lot of different things, what food and formulas to buy or avoid, typical allergies… Trade unions may invite experts from some NGOs, health institutions, ‘grandparent’ institutions, let us imagine,” he suggested.
The governor also stressed that the forthcoming 70th anniversary of the Great Victory gives great food for thought, and a potential to tie it together with veteran meetings and archive expositions that may be interesting for the masses.
