Ucrania - Security Service instructs the state-owned mine to invigilate trade unions

In May the Confederation of Free Trade Unions of Ukraine (KVPU) received information regarding a letter sent to the management of “Myrnogradvugilia” (State Coal Enterprise in the city of Myrnograd) from the Pokrovsk regional Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) department №2 in Donetsk and Lugansk regions. This letter instructed the management to immediately inform SBU on activities of the local chapters of the Independent Miners’ Trade Union (NPGU), an affiliated organisation of the KVPU. KVPU sent a letter to the government, including to the president, the prime minister and the head of state security service, order to immediately stop the violation of the miners’ unions’ rights, to cease the persecution of the union activists, and prevent similar illicit actions of the Security Service of Ukraine in the future.
