BIST – a participant of the International Forum “The Future of Work: Decent Work for All”

On February 4, the International Forum “The Future of the Work: Decent Work for All” began its work in Ufa. It was symbolic to hold it at this location. On March 20, 1919, when the government signed an agreement on the creation of an autonomy in Bashkortostan, at about the same time in Paris, nations were discussing the rights of workers. Subsequently, governed by the Versailles Peace Treaty, the International Labor Organization was created. This year, ILO, together with the Republic of Bashkortostan, celebrates its 100th anniversary. Our Academy of Labor and Social Relations marks the same anniversary: ​​On April 1, 1919, the Instructor School of the All-Russian Central Council of Trade Unions was opened. In May of the same year the first graduation of the first trade union educational institution of Russia took place, with the first graduating class of 90 students.

They require an in-depth analysis, constant search for new, often non-standard, original decisions. And in this sense, we have to be pioneers, to design a new architecture of social reality. … In the conditions of changing forms of labor, transformation of the market, our main task is not to lose sight of a person and not let him get lost”.
