Amendments to Art. Art. 2 and 5 of the “temporary provision on bonuses in kind”.
In changing the ʺtemporary provision on bonuses in kindʺ on October 23, 1920 ( No. 92, Art. 497 ), the Council of Peopleʹs Commissars resolves to state Art. 2 and 5 of the Provisions as follows.
Art. 2. The total number of items to be issued to workers and employees of enterprises (bonus fund) is established depending on the execution of the production program, and bonuses in kind begin when the enterprise fulfills 100% of the production program. The ratio of the amount of natural resources issued to the amount of output in excess of the production program is established by the All‐Russian Central Council of Trade Unions (V.Ts.S.P.S.) for individual industries. In special cases, by decree of V.Ts.S.P.S., according to the degree of the enterpriseʹs equipment and its adaptability to systematic work, bonuses in kind can be introduced even before the enterprise has completed 100% of the production program. These deviations must be agreed in the bonus system of the given production or enterprise and previously approved by V.Ts..S.P.S. The procedure for establishing the bonus fund is developed by V.Ts.S.P.S. and approved by the Interdepartmental Bonus Meeting.
Art. 5. The bonus is distributed by the administration among the production workers, depending on the output in excess of the established norms applied for piece payment. The full bonus is issued upon the development of 3 norms. The ratio of the issued percentage of the full bonus to the size of the output is established by V.TS.SP.S. :) when working out and below 3 standards.
At the rates applied in the system of payment according to the% of time saved to issued (Rauen), the output rates corresponding to the same premium are increased by 3 times.
For persons working out more than 3 standards, the premium is determined by the Rate Commission as a special award. The amount of awards is approved by the Provincial or County Council of Trade Unions and the names of such persons are published in the local press.
