As the Kremlin’s invasion of Ukraine unfolds and Russian shells and bombs continue to explode in Ukrainian residential neighborhoods, hospitals, universities, and among innocent civilians, EFFAT has joined the trade union movement and mobilised in support of our Ukrainians Brothers and Sisters.
Here below you can find a list of initiatives that EFFAT and trade unions have taken to express their firm opposition to this atrocious act of invasion and send solidarity to all people involved. All affiliates are warmly encouraged to inform the EFFAT Secretariat about any further initiative, action or statement taken up in support of the workers and people affected by the War.
We also invite our Coordinators in TNCs-EWCs to share with us any initiative adopted at company level, including statements and solidarity messages.
While the events unfold, EFFAT will seek all possible ways to get involved to ensure the immediate withdrawal of Russian troops and the restoration of peace to Ukraine.
