All-Ukrainian Trade Union Forum’s Resolution

Participants in the All-Ukrainian Forum, representatives of more than 60 thousand primary trade union organisations, mandated by five million trade union members, have met on 16th of January in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine, at this crucial time for our country to send the country’s top officials the message of anxiety and indignation from the employees of enterprises and organisations in connection with economic and social “reforms” of the new Government, which are conducted in a hurry and without proper public discussion.

When electing new government – the President, the Verkhovna Rada that appointed the Government of Ukraine, workers as voters sincerely hoped for large-scale positive change: rapid development of economy, creation of new jobs with decent pay and good working conditions, employment prospects for youth in the country. Labour veterans expected adequate financial support in old age for their many years of service.

That is why almost three-quarters of the voters saw Volodymyr Zelenskyi and his political force the Servant of the People as drivers of progressive change and development of the effective economy with European standards of living and respect for human rights and social dialogue.

But people’s expectations were not fulfilled.
