Ukraine handsoff Ukraine uions ITUC

(12.02.2021) The EU-Ukraine summit took place in Brussels 11 February. EPSU joins the ETUC in demanding the Ukrainian government respects its social and trade union rights commitments part of the Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement. The behaviour of the Ukraine government towards the unions is reason for serious concern. Despite massive protests in the Ukraine the government persists in pursuing a course that puts the trade unions under pressure. This European Commission has committed to social dialogue and the strengthening of collective bargaining. This needs to be visible in all its policies.
