Solidarity message to UK public sector workers, from Berlin, Germany

Striking health facility workers in Berlin, Germany, have sent the following solidarity message to public sector trade unionists in Britain:

To the striking colleagues of the NHS and other striking workers in Britain

We are now in our 12th week on strike for a collective agreement. Our company is a daughter of Europe's biggest university hospital, the Charité in Berlin.

We are responsible for cleaning, technical support, transport and logistics of medical goods, blood and patients.

Since 2006 the management absolutely rejects signing a collective agreement with decent wages and working conditions.

We totally agree with your demands against pension cuts and cuts in the public sector. Our company is partially privatised with all the bad consequences for the workers and their families.

We are fighting a common struggle against worsening living and working conditions. At a meeting today we decided to send you a declaration of solidarity and support.

Solidarity regards,

Striking workers of Charité Facility Management GmbH, Berlin, Germany
