Our successful projects

We have recently received a decision on state registration for the creation of a trade union which has the status of an all-Ukrainian union.
The trade union is deemed to be established and given the status of a legal entity and the UGREOU code is assigned to it.
REGISTRATION OF TRADE UNION (All-Ukrainian Trade Union Organization)
05/25/2020 registered the Trade Union in Kyiv.

A labor union becomes a legal entity upon approval of its organizational document (charter or regulations), rather than upon its registration. This means that the labor union is considered to be established, when, for example, its charter is approved and signed. After that it shall be registered. The labor union shall be registered within 60 days following signing of its organizational documents.

The law of Ukraine stipulates that the  Ministry of Justice cannot refuse to register a labor union. In case of failure of the organizational documents to comply with the current law, the Ministry of Justice can only advise on amending the documents. But in practice it is not so easy to do, because in case of any deficiencies in the charter or the regulations, the Ministry of Justice requires to hold a new meeting to amend the documents.

Only citizens of Ukraine can be founding members of labor unions. Foreigners and stateless persons are not entitled to create a labor union, but they can join already existing labor unions as their members.

Answers to frequently asked questions

Can two labor unions be established within one company?

Yes. This is firstly due to the fact that the legalization authority has no right to refuse to register a labor union. If the company already has a primary labor union, but there are people who apply for registration of another one, it will be registered.

Do we need to notify the company’s management of our intention to establish a labor union and get approval?

No, pursuant to the law of Ukraine, no approval is required to establish labor unions. But you should decide whether you are comfortable to work at an enterprise where you do something without the knowledge of the management.
