The WFTU strongly rejects and denounces the anti union and anti workers policy of the Australian Government and the Australian government institutions in the eve of the schedules national protest of March 4th.
The Fair Work Building and Construction agency of the Australian Government issued some days ago, an “urgent message” to construction workers, reminding them that class action and strikes “have consequences” that can result to 10,200 AUD fines for workers who attend the rally without the employer’s permission!
The right to strike is a right conquered with many bloody and heroic struggles.
The effort for limiting or eliminating the right to strike will always find the international class oriented trade union movement on the opposing fighting side.
The WFTU condemns these hideous threats by the “Fair Work Building and Construction”, the anti-union policy of the Australian government and the persecution against trade unionists and workers who fight for their rights and the rights of their colleagues. We express our full class solidarity with the Australian workers and people against the oppressive measures of the Australian government and we wish them all the success in their struggles and mobilizations.
