I found a couple of items when working through some Russian stamps I had accumulated and could use a bit of help in getting more details on these items.

The first is a partial sheet of what I believe are Union Dues stamps.

The inscription translates as "All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions" and "Professional Risk". At least that is what Google translate gave me. There is lots of info that can be found on the All-Union Central Council. What I am curious about these stamps is when and where they may have been used.



The second is definitely a cinderella label. Does anyone know any more about this item such as date and other similar labels from the same 'set'?



Thanks for any and all assistance

The second item is definitely a match box lable, not a cinderella.

The first one (part of a sheet) is really a trade union stamp - it's a monthly membership fee stamp with a pay stub under it.

You (or your Google tramnslator) are quite right about the translation of the upper word in capital letters - "All-Union Central Council of Trade Unions"
But I see nothing that might be translated as "Professional risk"

The two words above the hammer and the sickle read "Unified trade union stamp", the ones below - "membership fee / 1 r(uble) 50 k(opecks)

The text in the stub reads "Trade Union pay stub / 1 r 50 k"

This stamp must be from the 1960s
When the fee was paid (every month), the upper stamp was glued in the worker's Trade Unions personal membership card#1073; while the other part (pay stub) was glued onto his/her registration card in the office, for control purposes. These stamps went out of use in the 1970s, as far as I know.
This stamp was used all around the USSR.

Thank you vicaf60. The "Professional Risk" translation was probably due to my incorrect rendering of the Russian characters.
