Sign the petition to show your support with the Greek workers

The Greek trade unions are battling to retain industrial employment, but instead of supporting them, the Greek authorities have attacked trade union and workers’ rights and criminalized their leaders. 12 trade unionists, including the President of the Greek metalworkers’ union POEM, are currently faced with legal proceedings because of false allegations linked to a fair and justified demonstration in 2012. They appeared in court on 1st October 2013 when over 150 trade union leaders and members of industriAll Europe affiliates from all over Europe came to Athens to show their support. Judgment in the case has been postponed to a second hearing on 5th May 2014.
