Message of support from CGIL
23 November 2015
First of all, I would like to introduce myself as Coordinator of the International and European.
Department of CGIL. I also have the pleasure to introduce you to Salvatore Marra, in cc to this message, who has recently been appointed adviser at the International and European Department of CGIL and will be in charge of the relations with African Unions.
I understand that COSATU is holding its Congress these days in Midrand. I take the opportunity of this message to wish you all a very successful congress: We need stronger unions to oppose the global challenges with which we are faced recently. Austerity measures in Europe and in Italy represent a clear challenge to workers rights and their well being. The CGIL has been recently opposing the Italian labour market reform and trying to join in solidarity with unions at European and global level against the overall deterioration of rights.
In this difficult situation of crisis and global downturn, we wish a very successful congress to all delegates and hope to continue a fruitful collaboration in the future.
European and International Policies Department CGIL
