The leadership of the Trade-Union Federation RB sent the letter to the Russian State Duma with the request to make the rates of rise of the tariffs for housing and communal services for population, caused by the liquidation of the cross funding, lower.
It is said in the letter that the growth of the tariffs for housing and communal services is caused by the accelerated rates of stage-by-stage liquidation of the cross funding of the population by other groups of consumers in the tariffs for heat energy, water supply and water discharge with the deadline on January 1, 2011, laid in the federal law “The Fund for assistance to housing and communal services reforming”.
The major part of the cross funding, accumulated for the previous decades, should be liquidated during just three years and it leads to unreasonably high growth of tariffs for population. For the last two years the payments for the heat energy have grown up nearly twice and especially high growth of tariffs for some kinds of housing and communal services is expected in 2011.
Trade-unions of Bashkortostan offer the State Duma to alter the law in order to keep the rates of growth of the housing and communal services tariffs for population back.
