Catholic construction workers forced to work on Christmas

A human rights activist Raman Kislak from Brest received information that the employees of Brests Stroytrest number 8 were forced to work on 25 December.

The organization announced that 25 December 2013 was a working day instead of a day off on 8 January 2014. Some departments of the organization stated there was the respective order, while others stated there would be a working day without a respective order, - Raman Kislak shared with the pyx.by web-site.

According to the human rights activist, many Catholics and Protestants are employed at the organization, who celebrate Christmas on 25 December: People are very disappointed, they worry. Families are waiting for them at home. They have been preparing for the main religious holiday.

In this regard Raman Kislak wrote a letter to commissioner for religious and ethnicity issues, Prosecutor General and the Minister of Architecture and Construction.

I deem it outrageous and violating basic rights of citizens that people are forced to work on the day. It is a blatant discrimination of their religious sentiment. Such actions of the organizations management may lead to a religious confrontation, because Orthodox Christians will have a day off on their Christmas, while the Catholics and Protestants have to work, - the activist of the Movement for Freedom says in his appeal.

The human rights activist demands to cancel the arbitrary and illegal orders to have a working day on 25 December 2013.
