 New stretch target

The more we raise the more we can do to support the comrades in Ukraine.

Ukraine's miners trade unions – the Independent Trade Union of Ukrainian Miners (NGPU) and the Trade Union of Coal Industry Workers of Ukraine (PRUP) – have made urgent appeals for aid to assist their members who have volunteered to serve on the frontline resisting the Russian invasion: defending their workplaces, homes, families and communities.

These communities, mainly in the east and south of Ukraine, are facing constant Russian attacks, resulting in the death and injury of thousands.

The miner trade unions are raising money for thermal imagers, sleeping bags, first aid kits, medicines, and two 4x4 pickup vehicles.

** The UK National Union of Mineworkers, GMB and ASLEF have donated over £20,000 to the appeal, and have appealed for other unions and individuals to donate too. Please help us boost the total from the UK labour movement, left and supporters of Ukraine! **

Please donate individually and also consider raising in your union or other organisation.
