On 19 July 2022, in the middle of a war, the Ukrainian parliament
adopted Draft Law 5371, which abolished labour rights for 94% of
This law introduced extreme liberalisation of labour relations,
depriving workers of union protection.
The Ukrainian trade unions actively opposed this anti-labour draft law
for two years.
But despite many warnings from the International Trade Union
Confederation, the European Trade Union Confederation, and the

This new law will lead to a massive violation of workers' rights -- and
Ukrainian unions are asking for our help and support in telling
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to veto the law.
Please take a moment to show your support for the Ukrainian workers
