On behalf of the Pancyprian Federation of Labour PEO Cyprus we express our solidarity with strike organized by USB on the 25th of March demanding to stop of any production and activity that is not necessary and measures for the protection of the workers’ rights and health.

In Italy, as well in all other European countries the austerity measures that the European Union is imposing, have led to the destruction of the national health system and today the people are paying the price with the spread of the pandemic coronavirus and the loss of thousands of people.

At the same time, the companies continue to increase their profits by exploiting the workers and ignoring any protection measures.

We extend our condolences to the families of the passed away people and we once again assure USB that we stand in solidarity with their strike.
