16.05.2013 ITF/ETF

Nakon ukazivanja ITF-u na situaciju koja se trenutno događa u Croatia Airlinesu i borbe koju kabinsko osoblje vodi za svoja prava, dobili smo odgovor i pismo podrške koje prenosimo u cjelosti. SPH će uvijek pružiti podršku, iskazati solidarnost i pomoći svim sredstvima industrijske akcije te se nadamo skorom pozitivnom ishodu u korist radnicima CA-a.

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

I am writing to you to express the ITF’s Civil Aviation Section’s support for your decision to stand up to attempts to strip you of your hard-won gains, employment and working conditions at Croatia Airlines. We have learnt of your struggle from Capt Brazzoduro, General Secretary of the Seafarers Union of Croatia.

I sincerely hope that your employer will quickly recognise that unity, and justice are on your side and act to kill off the contentious plans, which once again risk impoverishing ordinary workers while executive salaries prosper.

Croatia Airlines needs to face the future with a progressive and motivated workforce. That workforce has proven its willingness to help move the airline forward; it is now time for the management to recognise that fact and withdraw its ill thought out and punitive plans.

If you agree, we can be sending separate letters to Croatia Airlines management and the government officials to ask them immediately stop attacking Croatia Airlines workers and their basic trade union rights. Of course, in this strongly worded letter, we will ask airline management to reinstate previously unfairly dismissed workers without delay.

Your struggle is important for all Croatian workers as well as all the workers around the world. Losing such battles only encourages employers and governments to engineer even further and brutal attacks on workers.

Yours in solidarity,

Gabriel Mocho
Civil Aviation and Tourism Services Secretary
