Solidarity with BSNL employees
Brothers and Sisters
We, the CSP-Conlutas, are a new militant Labor Federation in Brazil commited to International Solidarity.
We learned about the great 3-day strike all employees of BSNL are going on at this moment.
In Brazil, the large Telecom company and all its state branches were privatized in the 1990s.
The results are negative for the working people: More than half of the employees were laid off, working conditions got much worse, labor rights are not enforced. On the top of that the quality of the services decreased and the telephone bills soared.
That is what privatization is about. The priority are profits not people, be they customers or employees.
For these reasons we want to express our full support for your struggle against privatization and for wages, jobs and working conditions.
Longlive the struggle of BSNL employees!
Workers of all the World Unite!
