Decent Work in Global Supply Chains

asking for solidarity with Ukrainian transport workers


dear participants of the course,

my question is not directly related to the course, but maybe you can find 5 minutes to express solidarity with Ukrainian transport workers struggle for their rights. you can send a letter of support (there is a ready template)

"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​."

sorry again, for my intervention,
