WE STRENGHTEN THE INTERNATIONAL SOLIDARITY
WE STRUGGLE FOR THE TRADE UNION LIBERTIES AND RIGHTS OF THE WORKING CLASS
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
