Despite this, the protective labour laws were never fully implemented and were irregularly enforced. With the mass recruitment of women workers to the Soviet industrialisation drive by the early 1930s, the abolition of Narkomtrud in 1933 and the subordination of the trade unions, labour protection issues were often ignored as women were encouraged to play a more 'equal' role in the production process.
