Ukrainian Workers in the Shadow of War
International Labour Network of Solidarity and Struggles invites to a series of meetings with Yuri Samoilov, head of the Independent Union of Miners of Ukraine in Kryvyi Rih, coordinator of the Local Confederation of Free Trade Unions.
During the meetings we will learn about changes in labour relations and wages during the wartime and the challenges these changes present to trade unions. We will get to know about the role of union organizations in armed resistance against the occupiers and in supporting civilians in the frontline areas. We will also talk about current needs and the importance of international solidarity with Ukrainian working class.
