СУББОТНИК Subbotnik (from Russian “Saturday”) in the USSR was a day of unpaid collective labor, usually on a Saturday.
Vladimir Lenin was an enthusiast of Subbotnik movement. In the spring of 1919 he called on workers to improve the work of railways. 15 communists of the Moscow sorting depot of the Moscow-Kazan railway decided to work all Saturday night from 11 to 12 of April. During 10 hours of work for free they repaired 3 steam locomotives and set a good example for others.
Throughout Soviet period the subbotniks took place on 22 April, Lenin’s birthday. Subbotniks were considered as one of the means of communist education of Soviet people. Later on, subbotniks turned from voluntary to de facto compulsory.
It was very hard to refuse non-paid collective work for a socially useful cause: those who tried to evade were publicly censured.
