The World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU), which represents more than 92 million workers from the 5 continents of the globe, has expressed its solid support and full solidarity with the hundreds of thousand workers in tea plantations of Darjeeling in India, their fair struggle and demands.
From its side, on behalf of the class trade unions and the movement of Greece, the All-Workers Militant Front (PAME) issued a solidarity statement, pointing out that "the striking land workers are demanding wage increases. The present wages are poverty wrinkles while on the other hand the monopolies are continuously increasing their profits. PAME supports the workers' struggle and calls upon all trade unions to stand by their side by all means."
Since Tuesday, hundreds of thousands of tea plantation workers in eastern India have been on a three-day strike demanding a 50 cent increase in their daily wage from the government and estate owners.
