The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing more than 92 million workers in 126 countries all over the world, extends its internationalist solidarity with the trade union SNATEGS and with the workers of Sonelgaz in Algeria.
The WFTU denounces the Sonelgaz administration that violates the constitutional and international laws and tries to dissolve the trade union action and the workers’ right to strike. Moreover we condemn the effort of terrorization of the protesting workers and the penalization of their struggles.
As the world’s militant trade union movement, we strongly demand the respect of trade union freedoms. We call on the Sonelgaz company and the responsible authorities of Algeria to stop these anti-trade union measures and we support the workers’ fair demands.
