Solidarity message of the European Regional Office of the WFTU with General Strike called by PAME on 30 of May 2018

The European Regional Office of WFTU expresses its class solidarity with the general strike called by the class based trade union movement of PAME in Greece on the 30th of May against the anti-labour measures and the denial of the government to bring to the parliament the demand of the trade unions for the restoration and signing of collective agreements, increase on wages, pensions and social benefits.

In Greece, the implementation of anti-worker measures, such as the destruction of collective agreements, sackings, cuts in wages and pensions and privatisations confirm that the only choice for the class-based trade union movement and the working people is the organisation of the reaction and struggle of the working people against these policies.

In the current tough conditions the issue of supporting and expressing class solidarity with the daily struggles being waged against the policies of exploitation and subordination has never been so imperative.

The European Regional Office of WFTU stands on the side of the Greek working people and calls all class based organizations in Europe to express their solidarity.
