A Moscow court prohibited a planned job action last week by Russian air traffic controllers represented by the Labor Union of Russian Radio Location and Navigation Workers. Russian prosecutors describe as illegal a section of the controller’s charter that specifically addresses their ability to hold rallies, demonstrations, pickets and other collective gatherings as a way of lobbying their interests. The court agreed and also demanded the union bring its charter into alignment with Russian law, which bans public servants from such activity.
