MOSCOW, October 27. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin is expected to have a meeting with leaders of Russian trade unions on Tuesday, the Kremlin press secretary, Dmitry Peskov, said on Monday.
"The president maintains permanent dialogue with the trade union leaders and it will continue this time, too," he said.
The meeting is taking place on the threshold of the 110th anniversary since the foundation of the trade union movement in Russia and the 25th anniversary since the setting up of Russia's Independent Trade Union Federation. The presumable list of attendees includes the top executives of the federation and a number of industrial unions.
Vladimir Putin has regular meetings with the head of the trade union federation, Mikhail Shmakov. As they met last September in Sochi, Putin told him it would be rather difficult to find efficient solutions to social issues and assure the protection of workers and employees' interests without the trade unions.
The 1st All-Russia Conference of Trade Unions was convened in Moscow in 1905. It set up the Central Bureau of trade union organizations.
Federation of Independent Trade Unions was set up in 1990 as an organization separate from the All-Union Central Council of Trade Union. Mikhail Shmakov chairs it since 1993.
The federation puts its current membership at over 20 million people.
