Help us raise funds to support Ukraine’s miners’ unions, supporting their members resisting the Russian invasion. Donate Here: Union Aid Crowdfunder
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 urgently needed medicine, first aid kits, thermal imagers, sleeping bags, and two 4×4 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.

Recently trade unions who support the Ukraine Solidarity Campaign delivered a vehicle packed with aid for the miners in Donbas. The pick up is now in use and we received the following message from the miners union: The L 200 car is already at work on the front line, saving the lives of Ukrainian soldiers. Many, many thanks for your help!!!
