On February 20, 2018, trade unions held a protest in the courts of Athens against the persecution of 35 cadres of PAME.
This is a persecution against presidents, leaders of federations and trade unions, for a mobilization they organized on January 30, 2013 at the Ministry Of Labor.
The Trade Unions demanded “Withdrawal now of all the charges against the 35 cadres of PAME.
NO to the criminalization of workers’ struggles. Intimidations will fail”. At the same time international solidarity was expressed by the World Federation of Trade Unions and trade union organizations of many countries.
Eventually, the trial was postponed to October 2, holding active the charges against PAME, while the Government and the employers are escalating repression and persecution against workers who are struggling to protect their jobs and salaries.
