The trade union Pro will donate 120,000 euros to support the Ukrainians. Donations are distributed through four different aid organizations, UNICEF, the Finnish Red Cross, Save the Children and Finn Church Aid.
Pro is also challenging other unions and employers ’organizations to donate support to Ukraine. The Pro donation amount is set at 1 euro per member.
- The Ukrainian people now need the support of all countries and organizations, both spiritual and financial, to defend themselves against Russian aggression. This is Pro's way of showing support for the Ukrainians. We challenge other organizations at the same time, says Jorma Malinen, President of Pro.
In addition, Pro, like other unions, has ended the Teboil fuel discount for its members. Pro is also recommending to its affiliated branch unions to avoid using Russian-owned services at all association events.
