Ucrania - The chair of the branch union fired (2012)

Iryna Chyzhova, the chair of the KVPU branch union at the OJSC Zaporizhya Cable Plant, was illegally fired in February. The KVPU complained to the General Prosecutor’s Office, and filed a lawsuit against the employer.

Tetyana Burmakova, the chair of NPGU local trade union organisation at the Vatrusheva mine was fired the day after the management of the mine was informed of the establishment of the local trade union organisation, in May. Her dismissal was a blatant violation of the labour legislation. After the NPGU Chairman appealed to the mine management and negotiated with them, Mrs Burmakova was reinstated in her job.
