Solidarity message

FISE, World Federation of Teachers’ Unions, affiliated to WFTU expresses its solidarity and support to the workers and unions of PAME for the General Strike of December 8.
This strike is a response to the brutal policy of the SYRIZA Government, which imposes new antilabour measures, further wage cuts and cuts in pensions, more flexible working relations, removes trade union rights and freedoms, attacks social security rights and imposes new brutal taxation to the workers and pensioners.
FISE, expresses its support and solidarity with this great struggle of PAME
Long Live Solidarity!
Long Live Internationalism!

With militant greetings

Forever immortal 

On behalf of 92 million members of the WORLD FEDERATION OF TRADE UNIONS, I would like to convey to the cuban people,to the CTC, to the State and Party leadership of Socialist Cuba, our deepest condolences from the bottom of our hearts for the Comandante Fidel’s death. He was a leader who, along with Che, along with all his comrades, fought and beat the imperialists and their instruments.
For the WFTU has been the greatest honor Comandante Fidel’s own presence in its Congresses and his great speech to the delegates of the 10th WFTU Congress.
For the World Working Class will always be IMMORTAL.
