From The Socialist newspaper, 25 May 2006

Appeal for solidarity with Venezuelan workers

"The Executive Committee of the trade union Suprofard, which organises the pharmaceutical workers in Caracas, Venezuela denounces the company RACE C.A for its refusal to recognise our trade union.

We are the legitimate representatives of the workers on the shopfloor and the way in which management is behaving means that the workers we represent are being denied their most elementary rights.

The right of workers to organise in trade unions and to be represented by the trade union of their choice is fundamental and established in the Venezuelan Labour code and in the Venezuelan Constitution.

Our trade union Suprofard has been legally registered and can count on the support of the majority of the workers in this workplace.

Company management refuses to recognise the trade union and refuses to start collective wage negotiations or to respond in any way or form to the demands of the workers. What management has done is to put pressure, intimidate and even physically threaten workers who are supporting the trade union Suprofard.

The management of RACE have started to organise a 'yellow' [scab] trade union named Unitrace. This trade union is led by the lawyer Debora Espinoza who quite conveniently for the management of RACE is also the labour inspector for the capital district of Caracas.

We are also denouncing the way in which the company has forced workers to sign a monstrosity of a contract.

Our trade union Suprofard will, after consultation with the membership and in accordance with the Labour code of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela take industrial action to secure the rights of the workforce.

We are calling on all trade union organisations, national and international, to send letters of protest to the Ministry of Labour: despachoministerio@mintra.gov.ve and despachovice@mintra.gov.ve

Please send copies of your letter to keyujsr@yahoo.com , coronilujsr@yahoo.com, suprofard@yahoo.com , suprofard@gmail.com and cwi@worldsoc.co.uk

We are also asking for financial support for the strike fund of the Suprofard trade union."
