Book of Honor

Book of Honor

 

at enterprises in the USSR, a special book for recording the names of the most outstanding workers and office employees, such as the winners of socialist emulation and participants in the movement for a communist attitude toward labor. The registering of a worker’s surname, name, and patronymic in the Book of Honor is a form of moral incentive for good work provided for in labor legislation. The instructions on introducing Books of Honor were approved by the All-Union Central Committee of Trade Unions on June 17, 1952.

The question of recording someone’s name in the Book of Honor is discussed at a general meeting of the trade union group and is finally resolved by the Factory Trade Union Committee and the enterprise’s administrative officials. Employees whose names have been recorded in the Book of Honor receive an appropriate certificate, and a corresponding notation is made in their work record. Books of Honor are also maintained in military units.
