(en) cgt.org.es: CGT supports the General Strike on October 26 in Italy (ca, it) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 29 Oct 2018 08:21:36 +0200

From the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) we express our support and solidarity with the General Strike called on October 26 in Italy by the combative unions in Italy. ---- PERMANENT SECRETARIAT OF THE CONFEDERAL COMMITTEE OF THE CGT ---- As the comrades themselves inform us, in Italy, the living conditions of the working classes for years have worsened considerably in terms of income, and not only as a result of the last crisis. Social protection has declined, as well as labor stability and the bargaining power of the working class. Poverty has increased and the gap between rich and poor has widened. In addition, unlike other advanced capitalist countries, in Italy there has been no real recovery, with GDP even lower than pre-crisis levels. The long economic crisis that affects mainly the workers, has produced an enlargement in the gap between the center-north and the south of Italy respectively, in terms of income, employment and social assistance, and it has also expanded territorial inequalities. In the South, unemployment is particularly serious, but it is still high in the North, where job insecurity and remuneration persist.

Neither the previous governments assumed their responsibility to improve the living conditions of the working class nor is it expected that a new government that defines itself as racist, far-right and always in favor of the capitalism that sustains it will do so. Nor is it expected that the unions of the regime that renounce for years the mobilization and comfort against those causing precariousness and the maintenance of an unjust economic and social system, are keys that promote social change.

That is why the CGT sympathizes with anti-racist, class mobilizations and against corruption and exploitation in Italy this October 26, 2018.

For the struggle for wages; the reduction of working hours with equal pay to reduce unemployment; the defense of social welfare; union democracy against the monopoly of unions related to the government; the defense of the right to strike; the equality of civil and social rights for immigrants and the unity of the working class against racism, xenophobia, war and military missions.

Solidarity and internationalist mutual support,

Permanent Secretariat Confederal Committee CGT
