The journalists :
WE OPPOSE on the government bill, as it degrades collective bargaining, while it rewards individual contracts and consequently strengthens the employer side vis-.-Vis the employees. Also, by arranging the working time, the perception of the labor relations is strengthened, crushing the employees while it can also lead to a reduction of salaries. Regulation that was also criticized by the Scientific Service of the Parliament.
WE RESIST the attempted labor regression, the rapid deterioration that will be brought to the lives of all workers by the labor bill, which essentially institutes "new morals" as it seeks to remove the last vested labor rights. of employees, special protection of strikers is provided, while even the arrangements for arbitration favor the employer.
WE REJECT the blatantly anti-labor bill.
WE DEFEND our labor and insurance rights, supporting the autonomy of EDOEAP and ETAS-TEAS.
