The class unions of Greece responded to the call of PAME and thousands demonstrated on September 17 against the anti-trade union attack of the new Government of Greece.
The new Government of ND, using the anti-trade union legislation of the SYRIZA Government, wants to impose electronic registry for all union members, thus giving the employers, the police and the state the information of all militants and union members. Also they want to abolish the collective procedures of the unions, by imposing e-voting for all union decisions.
PAME and the class unions responded with yesterday’s massive and militant demonstrations in many cities of Greece and have called for a National General Strike on September 24.
On the other hand the trade union mafia of the GSEE leadership, at the beginning tried to silence any protests and then to present the measures as positive. When their attempts failed they started a plan to confuse and divide the response of the workers by calling for strike in some sectors and areas on September 25, although many federations and regional unions have already declared strike for September 24.
Against such tactics PAME calls the workers and the unions to respond to the Employers’-Government’s attack against Trade Union rights and freedoms with a unified, militant class response and NATIONAL GENERAL STRIKE ON SEPTEMBER 24.
