A meeting between the Secretariat of the TUI Transport and the WFTU Secretariat was held in Athens today.
After discussion, that was conducted in a fraternal spirit, it was decided that a World Trade Union Congress of the Transport Sector should be held.
The Congress will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, before the end of 2013.
We call all our the affiliates and friends of the WFTU, all the militants of the class trade union movement to discuss and decide their participation.
The TUI Transport Congress will be held at a crucial period for all sectors of transportation: air, land, maritime.
The privatizations, austerity, the offensive against wages and social security, the crackdown on freedom of association and the abolition of collective agreements are problems that affect all colleagues in all countries.
All together, affiliates and friends of the WFTU, should from today on start preparations, inform the bases of workers and take militant initiatives for the success of the World Trade Union Congress of Transport.
