Solidarity Message of the Pancyprian Federation of Labor PEO Cyprus with the General Strike organized by USB in Italy on the 21st of October.
The Pancyprian Federation of Labor PEO express it full solidarity and support to the general strike organized by USB on the 21st of October against the governmental measures concerning cuts in wages, pensions, and social benefits.
In Cyprus, we are also experiencing the effects of neoliberal policies agreed by the Cyprus government with the Troika and which have led to recession, a dramatic increase in unemployment and poverty, cuts to education, health and welfare.
The class trade union movement and the society in general have a duty to fight against these policies and for the defence of the working people rights and interests.
Once again we express our solidarity and we wish every success to your struggle.
