ForUm, 19 March 2003

During its third congress on Wednesday, the Ukrainian Free Labor Union Confederation [UFLUC] re-elected MP Mykhailo Volynets its chairman. According to Interfax-Ukraine, 66 out of 67 delegates of the congress voted for this decision, and one person, Volynets, abstained from the vote.

The congress also elected the confederation deputy chairmen, in particular Viktor Ditkovsky, Anatoliy Boychuk, Hryhoriy Nedvyha and Oleksiy Kliashtorny.

Volynets told journalists on Wednesday that the delegates made some amendments to the Statute of Confederation for the purpose of “concentrating efforts, organizing trade unions and improving their work.”

Volynets also heads the Ukrainian Independent Coal-Miners' Labor Union.
