Usb Logistics and the porters Leroy Merlin were right: the head of the Premium Net consortium and 5 of its employees were arrested


WFTU trade unions supported our struggles bringing our fight and our protest also in their countries in front of Leroy Merlin shops.

PAME, which represents the class trade union movement of Greece, expresses its solidarity and support to the USB Italy and the workers of Leroy Merlin, who are exploited through the "caporalato" method.

The multinationals exploit workers in all countries with similar ways. This why it is very important to support and multiply common initiatives of the workers in Multinationals such as Leroy Merlin.

Not only the cooperatives that provide manpower to Leroy Merlin do not guarantee the respect of the con-tract and the minimum rights -layoffs are daily and the replacement is very high, just workers try to raise the head – but they change continuously name and fiscal code to escape the labour inspectors in order to con-tinue undisturbed to violate the rules governing wages, regular contributions, and the protection of health in plants. In this often helped by complacent unions.

PAME denounces the provocative persecution of union leaders of USB Italy, for their protests following the murder of a worker by employers in 2016.

On 14 September 2016 Abd El Salam, a migrant worker and a member of USB was assassinated during a strike. USB immediately proceeded to mobilizations, while PAME, the World Federation of Trade Unions and trade unions from all over the world expressed their support for the Italian workers' struggle.
