EPSU calls for solidarity with Ukrainian unions
(12 March 2014) After weeks of not being able to work due to having their building occupied, the EPSU affiliates in Ukraine have requested assistance to help them to re-build Trade Union House, the headquarters of the FPU (national union confederation), burnt down on 19 February during the escalation of the crisis. The building on Maidan square also housed several trade union offices and the EPSU regional office. See the attached documents for more information. We will directly contribute to the restoration of the trade union premises, and we call on your generosity in order to help the trade unions to live up to the many challenges they are faced with. Please send donations to the EPSU bank account in Brussels, Belgium: Account owner: EPSU Bank name and address: KBC Bank, rue de la Science 25 - 1040 Brussels, BELGIUM IBAN: BE62 4376 2009 4261 BIC: KREDBEBB All the transfers should be marked “Ukraine”. Please inform EPSU of any donations you make, by sending an email to [email@example.com->mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Ukrainian trade unions have expressed their hope that through joint efforts with the help of the international trade union family, they will manage to restore the proper functioning of the Trade Union House and return to full scale trade union activities in new democratic context.
