Dear comrades of OS CMS Czech Republic
On behalf of the Executive Secretariat of PAME we wish all success to the Congress of OS CMS Czech Republic and express our class solidarity to the working class of the Czech Republic.
Your congress that takes place in a period of pandemic, imperialist war and a new capitalist crisis that is coming has the duty to organize and strengthen the fight and class struggle to defend the interests of the workers of the Czech Republic.
All over the world during the pandemic, it became clear who are the ones who move society, who are useful and necessary.
At the same time, business groups continue to count huge profits, treat employees as costs, and promote tough anti-workers’ measures.
Today, workers are confronted with inflation, high cost of living, the escalation of the anti-workers’ attack that requires workers to sacrifice their lives for the profits of the monopolies. Imperialist war in Ukraine brings new sufferings for the peoples. While Governments and the media are attacking with lies and slander against the workers who yesterday they called “heroes”.
Workers around the world are responding with massive, militant struggles for wage increases, better working conditions. In Greece, too, workers in a number of industries, with hard, even many-month struggles, demanded Collective Agreements with wage increases.
In Greece, the Construction Workers won and signed increases of over 20%, while the dock workers of COSCO also won Collective Contract with 20% wage increase. On June 23, the workers of the Pharmaceutical industries go on strike all over Greece, while on the 24th, the employees of the Hotels of Athens go on strike, also in the struggle for wage increases. The victory of the workers in one sector, in one country will be a weapon in our common struggle.
We thank OS CMS and its leadership for its steadfast solidarity with PAME and the class unions of Greece.
We stand by your side in your struggles and wish you all success to your congress.
Long Live the International Working Class!
