Ucrania - Union activist attacked in Kryvyi Rih

Olena Maslova, an activist in the Independent Trade Union of Miners of Ukraine (NGPU) and the Confederation of Free Trade Unions of Ukraine, was brutally attacked on 12 January 2016. She was attacked at 11.00 at night on her way home from work at the Lenin mine. Her assailant hit her on the head from behind with a heavy object. A workers’ security patrol promptly arrived at the scene, and she was provided with medical care. Olena reported the attack to the police, but it seems that no investigation of the incident took place.
The KVPU believe that the reason for the attack could have been her union activism, as Olena is the Deputy Head of Defence of the NGPU in Kryvyi Rih and a member of the Women’s Committee.
