Solidarity message to teachers’ unions of PAME
FISE condemns the attack of the repression forces against teachers and civil servants in Athens, Greece.
The demonstrators were protesting against the measure of availability and the dismissals of the employees in education and in the public sector.
The government of Greece and the EU, using the availability and the dismissals of the employees, intend to abolish the permanent and stable work, to replace it with 5-months programs, as well as to offer the crucial sector of the economy to the big business interests.
FISE supports the struggle of workers for their right to permanent and stable work. The direct confrontation and the assurance of the right to permanent and stable work for all the employees, that are in availability and under the threat of the dismissal is a matter for all the class-oriented trade union movement to deal with.
We invite the unions of FISE to condemn the attacks and to support the teachers and the civil servants in Greece, sending an email to FISE or to PAME.
The secretary of FISE expresses its opposition to the educational program of the E.U., which takes place in Greece, entitled “teachers for Europe”. The main purpose of this program is the submission of the teachers to the policies of the E.U. and to the service of the interests of the multinational companies and of the monopolies. Through these programs, they attempt to corrupt the conscience of young students and to promote the image of the school-company, of the student-client and of the commercialized education.
