Cities of Bashkortostan join the project «Trade-union discount card». Lenara Ivanova the vice-president of Federation of Trade unions RB informed about it today. As she said, especially actively this process goes in Beloretsk where already there are eight enterprises, giving discounts to members of trade unions, and in Sterlitamak where the similar agreement is concluded with six organisations.
The project «Trade-union discount card» started in our republic in February this year. Its main objective is to give chance to members of trade unions to receive discounts for goods and services of the companies participating in the project. The original project started to be realised in the territory of Ufa, however already soon it spread far beyond the capital.
Today on the trade-union discount card it is possible to get discounts at purchase of foodstuff, children's goods, stationery, sports goods. Discounts also are given for services of several gasoline stations, hairdressing salons and travel companies. And in the long term, trade unions consider possibilities of cooperation with large banks and insurance companies.
