SOLIDARITY MESSAGE TO THE TEACHERS IN VIRGINIA FROM THE 18TH CONGRESS OF FISE IN MEXICO
FISE FIRMLY SUPPORTS THE TEACHERS OF WEST VIRGINIA US
Τhe World Federation of Teachers’ Unions, FISE, affiliated to WFTU, the class oriented teachers organization, recognized AND FULLY SUPPORTS the heroic teachers of West Virginia in the US.
Your continuing struggle against anti- union, pro capital forces in West Virginia has taken on historic proportions. All the US is watching us. The whole world will be watching now.
We know that the governments, which supported and keep supporting the interests of the monopolies and the multinationals, forces especially among the coal operators who control the State legislature are vigorously opposed to your unions and the basic rights of all teachers and related personnel.
Decent wages, no charge for health services and a decent pension is a struggle that West Virginia families, almost all of whom have coal mining in their blood, hold strong to those traditions.
WE WISH SUCCESS IN YOUR STRUGGLE
INTERNATIONAL CLASS ORIENTED TRADE UNIONS ARE WITH YOU.
All POWER TO THE WORKERS AND THEIR TRADE UNIONS.
