The article speaks about the role of the trade union in providing decent work in Ukraine. It develops a multi-level system of benefits of decent work for participants of socio-labour relations, which proves that representatives of all participants of socio-labour relations are similarly interested in promoting principles of decent work, however, trade unions take the most active position on this issue. The article establishes that the programme documents of Federation of Trade Unions of Ukraine (FPU) and priority directions of its activity have been connected recently with provision of decent conditions of labour and life for citizens of Ukraine. In the course of retrospective analysis of experience of FPU with respect to realisation of the programme of decent work in Ukraine the article identifies main actions of the trade union in this direction. The article conducts assessment of factors that impede with effective struggle of trade unions for decent work. In particular, it analyses tendencies of change of trade union membership in Ukraine and Donetsk oblast, level of trust to trade unions, it reveals shortcomings of the personnel policy of trade union organisations. The article offers priority actions of trade unions with respect to provision of decent work in Ukraine on the basis of the obtained results.
