According to the report of the Peopleʹs Commissariat of Labor. ( Izv. No. 224, S. U. 72‐591 ).
Article No. 591.
Taking into account the conditions of the present moment, when in the whole industry there is a significant reduction in state production, that with the rational use of the breast will require a relatively small number of hands, a gradual transition to methods of volunteering labor force is an urgent task. On the other hand, the development of private industry dictates the need for a broad regulation of the labor market by state bodies. At the same time, these conditions eliminate the need for a transition in the relations of the implementation of mass labor and horse‐drawn duties to the establishment of firm norms based on the registration of the rural population.
The IV Session of the All‐Russian Central Executive Committee, after hearing the report of the Peopleʹs Commissariat of Labor and generally approving its activities, instructs the Peopleʹs Commissariat of Labor, on the basis of the above provisions, to carry out as soon as possible all the necessary measures to resolve labor issues in the prescribed manner.
At the same time, it is proposed that the Peopleʹs Commissariat of Labor, in view of the changed conditions, enter into an agreement with the All‐Russian Central Council of Trade Unions on the forms of its (Peopleʹs Commissariat of Labor) participation as a state regulator of labor in the areas of labor policy that are newly emerging in the new economic conditions, requiring state regulation , ‐ conflicts, tariffs, etc.
