Please inform me:
(1) Is there a work-time schedule operating in the telegraph department under which a person does 24 hours’ duty and then gets three days off?
(2) If so, when was this introduced and by whose order or decision? Please send in the full text and the names of those responsible for it.
(3) What measures, and when and by whom, have been taken to abolish such an obviously incorrect and impermissible work schedule.
V. Ulyanov (Lenin)
