The solidarity of the international trade union movement with Ukraine has a long history. The International Trade Union Confederation, ITUC, of which LO is a member, has supported Ukrainian free and democratic trade unions since the country’s independence in 1991. LO has written a report on our trade union solidarity work with Ukraine. The report is available in English and Ukrainian.
From the beginning, trade union organization has been about democratic rights in working life and its consequences for contributing to the building of society. How can trade unions and social partnership strengthen and shape the EU in times of changing labour market, global challenges and conflicts?
At least fourteen leaders and officials of the independent trade union movement in Belarus have been arrested by the country’s security service, the KGB.
