Ukrainians to form trade union in Poland

The founding meeting of the Ukrainian Workers' Trade Union has been held in the city of Katowice, Poland, Radio Poland reports.

“The documents on the establishment of the Ukrainian Workers' Trade Union will soon be submitted to the National Court Register [of Poland]. The office of the trade union will be located in Warsaw,” says the report.

According to Piotr Ostrowski, the director of the International Department of All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions, this is a joint initiative by Ukrainians, who often complain about various forms of discrimination, and the All-Poland Alliance of Trade Unions, which intends to assist them in fighting for their rights.

"Ukrainians, who often work illegally, don't have even minimum standard labor rights and social security, and they are simply exploited and deceived. They are unaware of their rights and do not know who to go to for help", the director said and added that sometimes Ukrainians are involved in forced labor, or even become victims of human trafficking.
