Dear Colleagues,

La Fédération CFDT Communication Conseil Culture (F3C CFDT) affiliated to UNI-MEI representing 140 unions worldwide in the media, entertainment and arts expresses its support for your strike action, which started today.

We support your demand for equal and fair treatment for pension and social security rights.  We join in your protest against the discrimination and in particular the attitude of the Labour and Social Protection Minister, Mr Savas Tsitouridis who refuses to include an amendment in a relevant proposed draft Law on pensions.

We call on the Greek Parliament to support the amendment, which is being forwarded and would enable all your colleagues to be accepted to the TSPEATH pension fund for media professionals and journalists.

In Solidarity,


General Secrétary
