Poland - Trade union for Ukrainian workers set up - June 30, 2016

Ukrainians willing to work in Poland are frequently cheated by both Ukrainian and Polish employers. Therefore, workers have established a trade union, assisted by their Polish colleagues. Key objectives are to improve working conditions and try to increase salaries for Ukrainian migrant workers. Around one million Ukrainians are employed in Poland. The aim is equal pay from 2017.
