The Communist Youth of Greece hosted the 14th Meeting of European Communist Youth Organizations in Athens on September 23-24.

The Meeting of European Communist Youth Organizations (MECYO), which takes place every year, is a forum for discussion, exchange of experience and promotion of joint action and coordination among Communist Youth Organizations. The 13th MECYO had taken place in İstanbul in February 2017 and celebrated the centenary of the Great October Revolution.

PAME calls every trade union, federation, Regional Trade Union Center, every worker and unionist to stand by the great struggle of the workers at the piers of Piraeus who continue their  struggle with a new Strike on Friday 7 September so as to sign Collective Contract.

We call on the trade unions of each country, in particular the Trade Unions in Ports and Transport Workers, to express Solidarity and Support to the COSCO Workers' Strike at Piraeus Port.

The National Strike of Maritime Workers on Monday, September 03 met great success and continues for 2nd day on September 4.

The struggle of maritime workers is a struggle for all workers. The intensity of the attack by shipowners and the government of SYRIZA / ANEL at the expense of all the rights of the maritime workers, goes hand in hand with the deterioration of transports at sea, with the reduced composition of ship crews, exhausting routes and deadly work schedules of maritime workers, even undermining the safety of human life at sea. A typical example is last week’s fire at sea on the ship "EL. VENIZELOS", which put in immediate danger the safety of human life of 875 passengers and 141 crew members.

PAME denounces the multinational COSCO because under its command, was violently assaulted and injured the President of the COSCO workers' union in Port of Piraeus, comrade Markos Bekris.

The attack took place last week during the Union’s briefing to the workers, in the middle of the day, while the union is on procedures of collective bargaining.

A new serious work accident in RIVULIS-EURODRIP Company was added to the dozens more that have taken place since the beginning of the year in the specific company in Greece. We forward you the Press Release of the Union of workers in RIVULIS-EURODRIP Greece.

On Tuesday 24/7/18, a colleague was injured when a machine smashed the thumb of his left hand, resulting in the need for surgery.

This phenomenon highlights once again the serious problem of accidents at work. For all these, they were not because of “bad timing” or "human error". They are the result of shortcomings in safety measures and intensification of work expressed in many ways every day. Examples are that inside the RIVULIS-EURODRIP Factory in Greece there are:

PAME and the class unions have organized a mechanism to support and help the victims of the wildfires.
