KIEV, October 15. /TASS/. Several thousands of representatives of the Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine on Wednesday demanded the working people’s rights be observed.
They gathered for a peaceful protest action at the government building with the trade unions’ symbols and banners. Slogans say “No Poverty in Ukraine”, “Stop Anti-Social Aggression”, “STOP Attack on Working People’s Rights”, “Reforms for Interests of People and not Oligarchs”, “For Decent Work and Fair Salary”, “Working Man High Value of Country”.
Several dozens of law enforcers ensure security of the government’s building.
Last week the participants in the National Forum of Trade Unions of Ukraine demanded the government should prevent job cuts, the shutdown of state enterprises due to energy restrictions, and the rise of consumer prices and tariffs amid the drop in real income of the population. The Forum of Trade Unions also demanded the government should pay salaries and social insurance benefits.
The Federation of Trade Union told TASS that the government “should eliminate discrimination in salaries to public sector workers and to people working in state service, as well as in local self-government structures”.
“We urge the government to immediately start the dialogue with social partners for implementing the key goal of the reforms - to achieve European living standards, primarily in the fields of employment, salaries, labour security, taxation and social development,” the Federation of Trade Unions said.
