In particular, we would like to thank you for the great honor of being here today with us, on the 20th anniversary of the foundation of PAME.

Creation of Need

It was April 3, 1999 when, with the great initiative taken by Federations, regional Trade Unions, Trade Unions, Unionists, was formed the All Workers Militant Front (PAME), the class-oriented pole within the workers movement. It was the response to the parasitic action of employers’ and government led unionism, which quickly adapted to the demands of the monopolies to serve competitiveness, to the promotion of European Union directives, to the hammering of working time, social security, the transformation of trade unions into enterprises , co-managers of the capitalist economy, in the social partnership. From the start inside the great struggles for which it was formed, against the NATO murderers in the Balkans, stopping trains and ships with their lethal cargo, against the governments of Simitis, which made our country the base of the imperialists, as is done today by the SYRIZA government.

On Tuesday, February 26, PAME held a Press Conference for the Developments in the Greek Trade Union Movement.

The Press Conference was held at the city of Kalamata, where is to take place the 37th Congress of the GSEE and started with the question.

The procedure for the confirmation of the delegates at the 37th GSEE Congress confirms the estimation of PAMEthat this is not a Workers’ Congress!

The practices followed by the GSEE leadership (PASKE, DAKE, SYRIZA, Vassilopoulos Group) in the elections of the unions have nothing to do with the collective processes and the real participation of the workers. ELECTION FRAUD IS HORRIFYING.

On Thursday, February 21, workers of Municipalities held a National Strike and Demonstrations all over Greece.

Main demand of the strike was the protection of the benefit to municipality workers for Dangerous and Unhealthy Work, a benefit that the Government wants to abolish. It is in this sector where the workers have suffered dozens of “work accidents” with more than 50 workers killed in the workplaces the last years.

«Stop the crime – Close the hot spot now. Unblock Refugees and Immigrants. Not in the downgrading of Healthcare «. With this motto, dozens of trade unions, professional associations, women’s and students’ organizations people of all ages participated in the mobilization and the strike on the island of Samos.

PAME stands by the side of the poor farmers who struggle against poverty and misery imposed by the Government-EU and Business Groups.

The class workers’ movement denounces the unprecedented governmental operation of intimidation and repression against the struggling farmers.

The Regional Trade Union Centre of Samos (island in the Aegean Sea close to Turkey) decided a 24-hour strike on Thursday, February 7th, in the island of Samos, highlighting that the SYRIZA government is systematically lying and is indifferent towards the humanitarian crime, which, with the government’s tolerance, takes place on the island.

A massive protests at the Ministries of Labor and Migration Policy, as well as at the Embassy of Bangladesh, was organized on Tuesday, January 8, 2019, immigrant land workers from the area of Nea Manoloda, in Southern Greece.

Dozens of migrants, most of whom lived in a camp that was burned last June, traveled by buses from the region to Athens, expressing their determination to fight against the miserable living and work conditions they face.
