Throughout the world, employers, governments – and sometimes other forces – are constantly fighting independent trade unionism, which brings together workers on the basis of the defence of their immediate interests and a desire to build a society that breaks with capitalism. This is done in various forms, sometimes extremely violent, sometimes “smoother”. Not all have the same consequences, but all are unacceptable.
The struggle for the respect of trade union rights is one of the common bases of the member organisations of the International Labor Network of Solidarity and Struggles as are feminism, anti-racism, anti-colonialism and ecology…. .. We therefore support the fight of the comrades of Avenir Syndical against the management of the University Hospitals of Geneva (HUG), which is violating the trade union freedom of its 12,000 employees.
