Venezuela: Stop the repression of trade unionists

THE FOLLOWING solidarity appeal calls for the immediate recognition of the SUPROFRAD union in the RACE pharmaceutical company plant, and for the re-admission of all those workers made redundant by management.

"WE, the workers in the medicine company RACE, appeal to all workers and the public, as well as other trade unions and popular organisations, to denounce the union busting and anti-worker policies of the management of the RACE company is using against its workers.

The medical company RACE is one of the most important distributors of medicines in the Venezuela. It accounts for 5% of the national market, and is the owner of Farma Plus, a franchise of pharmacies.

The company has responded to the constitutional right of workers to organise themselves with the dismissal of three members of the joint leadership of SUPROFARD, our recognised trade union.

On 4 November, Johnny Coronil and Danny Santos were sacked. They will join the general secretary of the trade union, SUPROFARD, who was dismissed by the company in May 2005, for demanding his rights.

The RACE management has set up a 'yellow union' that represents nobody and whose sole objective is to divide workers and to hinder the genuine organisation of workers. The company is threatening its workforce with new redundancies.

We appeal for national and international support.

With dignity, confidence and resistance, we will win."

The joint leadership of SUPROFARD union
