against the relics of the bourgeois system.

A provisional executive committee was elect
ed and prepared the summoning of the first All
Russian Conference of educational workers which
took place in July 1919. This Congress of work
ers in education and socialist culture, adopted the
Statutes which apply to all proletarian industrial
unions and its activity continued to develop in com
plete solidarity with all other proletarian organi
sations. The work of the conference was based on
the above mentioned principles. During the fol
lowing nine months the union did considerable
work. At the third Conference of trade unions
vvhich took place in April of this year, represen
u tatives of over 117.000 educational workers were
registered, while at the time of the first con-
lerence they had only 70,000 members. The con
tact between the Central committee and the locali
ties and that between the provincial branches and
the district sections was extremely weak in the
I beginning but is becoming stronger in spite of the
bad conditions of postal and railway communica
tions. The eighth and the ninth meetings of the
Central Committee took place conjointly with re
presentatives of a number of provincial branches
of the union. Provincial conferences took place in
Moscow, Petrograd and other districts of the
union ; and their minutes are sent to the Central
Committee. The Central Committee which was elec
ted at the first conference holds its meetings once
a month, when it examines important questions.
The Central Committee worked out statutes
in conformity with the fundamental trade union
statutes and instructions concerning mobilisation
of educational workers and the registration of lo
cal units. The wage standardisation department
worked out for all educational workers a wage
scale confirmed by the Peoples Commissariat of
Labour. At the present moment the department
is busy with working out the question of labour
standardisation, naturalisation of wages (payment
in kind) etc. The control and distribution of edu
cational workers is administered by the union. At
the Peoples Commissariat of Labour and at all
provincial departments of labour, sections for re
gistering and distributing educational workers arc
established; responsible representatives of the
union are at the head of these sections.
The extent of the union's participation ire
Soviet organs can be seen from the fact that the:
union has three representatives on the Govern
ment Committee of Education, and sends its repre
sentatives to the local departments of Public
Education according to the decree of the Council
of Peoples Commissaries of the 10. October 1919,.
issued on the union's initiative.
At the present time the department of Labour
Protection is engaged in a scientific investigation!
into the harmfulness of the profession, i. e. this
department will have to specify the extent and
character of sickness among educational work
ers and will have to make arrangament for those
categories of educational workers which require
special .conditions of labour, special clothing, spe
cial supply of soap, etc.
The union is actively engaged in improvihgr
public education being especially anxious to devel
op professional and technical instruction, to
abolish illiteracy, to develop the structure of the
socialist school to improve pre-scholar and post-
