International Lawyers Assisting Workers Network (ILAW Network) forwarded a letter to the Chair of Ukraine’s Parliament, Chair of Parliamentary Committee for European Integration, and Chair of Parliamentary Committee on Social policy and Veterans Protections, urging to withdraw the problematic ‘anti-union’ draft law #2681. 

Drafted without prior consultations with trade unions, the amendments listed within draft law #2681 violate several fundamental and technical ILO conventions which Ukraine has ratified, and in some cases violate the Constitution of Ukraine. There appears to be no motivation for these amendments other than to weaken the trade union movement. Thus, ILAW Network urged that these amendments be withdrawn.
