The World Federation of Trade Unions, on behalf of its 95 million workers in 130 countries of the 5 continents expresses its sincere condolences to the families and friends of the 4 miners who lost their lives in tow different labour accidents in Jabba Khush area of Pakistan the last days.

The workers were killed due to the tragic situation which prevails for years regarding the health and safety measures in the mines of Pakistan. The situation remains unchanged, despite the international and national conventions which are related with the health and safety regulations for the mines.

The bloody truth is that the countless profits of both the monopolies and the national companies are growing up based on the brutal exploitation of the workers as well as the tens of miners who are murdered every year in the mines of Pakistan.

The World Federation of Trade Unions demands the payment of the compensation and the investigation of the accidents conditions and punishment of the responsible. Once again the WFTU demands the determination and implementation of high standard of safety measures in all the mines and workplaces of Pakistan
