Ukraine: Kyiv transport workers face attacks on rights

In partnership with the ​Confederation of Free Trade Unions of Ukraine (KVPU), an ITUC affiliated trade union centre, and the second largest in the country.

In April 2016 workers of the state-owned ​transport enterprise Kyivpastrans ​formed an independent union to fight against violations of safety standards ​in the Kurenivske trolley bus depot​. The administration responded with ​a refusal to recognise the union, ​pressure​, threats and intimidation of the members of the union​, which is affiliated to the Confederation of Free Trade Unions of Ukraine (KVPU)​. Union members were blackmailed, deprived of their bonuses, suspended​ from the job, evicted from the company-provided housing, and physically ​attacked.​ ​
Help protect the independent union at Kyivpastrans ​b​y sending a message to the mayor of Kyiv​.
