COLECTIVO ACCION LIBERTARIA A.P. 11 G. VALLE DE GPE C.P. 55270 ECATEPEC, Estado de Mexico MEXICO
URGENT!!! SOLIDARITY COMMUNICATION
Comrades, The workers of "Imprenta Morales Hermenos", company which owns two factories in Mexico Federal District, have been on strike for the last 10 months in defence of their place of work.
The company's owners stopped paying wages and benefits to workers with an average of a 30-year seniority claiming a bad economical situation. A few weeks before this, they managed to get out of the premises much of the most modern machinery in the company, by which they are trying to avoid labor responsibility with their employees.
The main owner of "Imprenta Morales Hermenos", Juan Antonio Morales Carrillo, is also the owner of "Tlatoani de Mexico", where the machinery looted from "Imprenta Morales" was taken to. Today other workers are operating these machines while the employees of Morales are on guard outside the factories and collect funds to maintain their movement.
Workers, members of the FRENTE AUTENTICO DEL TRABAJO (Genuine Labor Front), have sued the company and expect a favourable resolution. Meanwhile, they are also putting pressure on the company "Bacardi de Mexico" so that they stop buying the cardboard boxes that "Tlatoani de Mexico" are making with machinery legally belonging to "Imprenta Morales Hermenos".
