The Trade Union of Railway Workers and Transport Builders of Ukraine plans to picket the building of Ukrzaliznytsia on July 8, 2021, demanding an increase in tariff rates and salaries for employees from June 1, 2021.

Railway Workers' Union to protest

Заметим, что с 1 июня 2021 должны были повысить тарифные ставки и должностные оклады на 10% всем работникам АО «Укрзализныця», кроме тех, должностной оклад которых превышает 30 тыс. грн. Это решение до сих пор не реализовано, сообщает железнодорожный журнал Railway Supply со ссылкой на Railinsider.

Note that from June 1, 2021, tariff rates and salaries were to be increased by 10% for all employees of Ukrzaliznytsia, except for those whose salary exceeds UAH 30 thousand. This decision has yet to be implemented, reports Railway Supply magazine

A massive protest action of railway workers took place in Kiev

According to the report, the presidium of the Trade Union Council decided to picket the building of Ukrzaliznytsia on July 8, 2021, demanding an increase in tariff rates and salaries for employees from June 1, 2021. Immediately after the protest action of the trade union, the active work of the central and regional headquarters for the organization and conduct of the protest action “work by the rules” will resume. If by July 7, 2021, the management of Ukrzaliznytsia JSC does not adopt a decision to increase tariff rates and official salaries from June 1, 2021, the trade union will request the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to dismiss acting Chairman of the Board of JSC “Ukrzaliznytsia” Ivan Yurik from his position.

It is noted that the Temporary Investigative Commission of the Verkhovna Rada on the inspection and assessment of the state of the joint-stock company was informed about the failure of the management of Ukrzaliznytsya JSC to fulfill its obligations to the 240,000-strong work collective of the company.
