RESOLUTION FOR SUPPORT TO THE LAID OFF CLEANERS OF THE MINISTRY OF FINANCE

The Pan-Hellenic Federation of Postal Unions (POST, in Greek: ΠΟΣΤ) and all the Hellenic Post employees express our solidarity and undivided support to the struggle of the 39 cleaners who worked for the Ministry of Finance, who were laid off on September 18th 2013 and have been protesting ever since.

We are by their side, supporting their fight for their human rights to life and dignity, for their fundamental right to work; we remain by their side and against policies which result in impoverishment.

We demand application of the ruling of the Athens Court of First Instance, which ruled that the suspension of the cleaners was against the law and ordered that they return to their working duties, according to the following ratio decidendi:

“under no circumstances are radical interventions in the citizens' lives justified, as such actions lead to the impoverishment of a large number of families, bearing the evident danger of the deconstruction of society”.
