A decree on the size of 100% of average earnings, published with the appropriate signatures, serves as the basis for the payment of maintenance to all responsible workers of professional (except for factory committees, local committees and other union organizations in enterprises and institutions), economic, Soviet and party organizations of a given locality and is valid until a special resolution of the Labor Rationing Department of the All‐Russian Central Council of Trade Unions.
