Steering Committee statement on AST Terni and Police Violence
30 October 2014   The struggle continues against the drastic cost-cutting plan of the ThyssenKrupp management following their reacquisition of AST Terni. When a demonstration moved from the German Embassy to the Italian Ministry of Industry, the demonstrators were violently attacked on two occasions by the Italian police. These attacks were of an extremely aggressive and unprovoked nature. IndustriAll Europe strongly condemns these unprovoked attacks and the extreme violence used by the Italian police and condoned by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. read more

Ermenek Mining Accident: Call to sign ILO Convention 176
29 October 2014   IndustriAll Europe is shocked to learn of the accident in the hard coal mine at Ermenek in the Karaman province in Turkey where 18 miners are still trapped underground due to the immense flooding that occurred yesterday. This tragic accident occurring just six months after the Soma tragedy makes us extremely angry as we deem every mining accident to be preventable if adequate precautions are taken. Once again, this highlights the urgency for the Turkish government to tackle health and safety issues and sign the ILO Convention 176 without further delay! read more
