MINSK, 21 March (BelTA) – Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko signed decree No.105 “On overtime and work on days off in industrial organizations” on 21 March, BelTA has learned.

The decree has been passed in order to utilize the available manpower with the necessary competences as much as possible for the sake of accomplishing strategic tasks of utmost importance in the manufacturing sector.

The decree allows raising the limit of overtime and work on days off with approval of the trade union and with consent of the workers to satisfy justified manufacturing and economic needs.

The increase shall be stipulated by a corporate regulation. The employer shall have to notify the Department for State Labor Inspection of the Labor and Social Protection Ministry, which will constantly monitor the situation.

BelTA reported earlier that a request for the head of state to regulate some legislation provisions that limit overtime hours was made during a tour of the Belarusian car factory BelGee on 19 January 2024.

Aleksandr Lukashenko was informed about the company’s upgrade plans for the sake of increasing the output. The company needs well-trained personnel taking into account the plans to increase the output and peculiarities of automobile manufacturing. The number of workers the company employs rose from 1,200 to 1,500 people over the last year. But the current manpower is sometimes insufficient. This is why the company’s management approached the president with the request to tweak the legislation provisions. The head of state gave instructions to promptly submit proposals in order to fix the situation.
