The World Federation of Trade Unions expresses its solidarity to the people of India who is suffering by the severe weather conditions prevailing in several areas of India. High-speed winds, storms and lightning devastated many villages, bringing down homes and leaving hundreds dead and injured.
The workers and the popular strata are once again unprotected against the natural disasters and pay with their lives the cost of the lack of adequate protection measures in all the aspects of their lives.
The World Federation of Trade Unions, representing more than 92 million workers, expresses its sincere condolence to the affected ones and to the relatives of the people who lost their lives. We joint our voice with the trade union movement of India demanding the implementation of immediate and adequate measures to ensure that no other lives will be lost because of natural disasters.
