Greek bus workers' union leader speaking at NSSN conference

The National Shop Stewards Network (NSSN) has announced that Apostolis Kasimeris, a member of the executive committee of the Union of Public Transport Workers in Attica (Athens and Pireaus region), Greece will speak at the 5th annual NSSN conference on Saturday 11th June 2011.

While the main themes of the conference will be supporting the pension strikes in Britain on 30th June, defending the NHS and fighting the anti-union laws - the presence of Apostolis will bring home to delegates the incredible resistance of working people on an international scale this year.

NSSN chair Rob Williams explained:

"It's amazing to think that in just five months we've seen revolutions in Egypt, Tunisia and throughout the Middle East and North Africa; and a mass movement of workers in Wisconsin and other cities in the USA to defend basic union rights.

"Now we have the occupation of the city centre squares in Spain, Greece and other European countries. We're delighted to welcome Apostolis as the Greek workers are an inspiration for their struggle against austerity attacks because of the financial crisis, as here caused by the bankers.

"They're holding their 10th general strike on June 15th and Apostolis's union members were on strike for three months earlier in the year".

Other speakers at the conference include:

RMT president Alex Gordon;

PCS president Janice Godrich;

Victimised London tube drivers Eamonn Lynch and Arwyn Thomas;

CWU London district officer Mark Palfrey, who will be speaking about the threatened closure of three London mail centres.


Conference details:

11.30am - 4pm

Saturday 11th June 2011

South Camden Community School, Charrington Street, London, NW1 1RG
