May Day statement 2015

Met enige vertraging, maar toch!
May Day statement 2015

Dear sisters and brothers in the postal sector in Palestine and worldwide,
Dear sisters and brothers in the leadership of the independent trade unions in Palestine and partner unions
Dear sisters and brothers and partner unions in the global union movement,
We send you greetings from the free workers of occupied Palestine, where millions of people have been displaced since 1948 and millions continue to live under the oppression and injustice of Israeli colonial occupation, and its discriminatory policies

On this May Day, we reaffirm our love for freedom, and our aspiration to independence and self-determination, as well as our will as Palestinian workers to obtain our legitimate rights, our right to a fair wage, stable jobs, and respect of our right to organize and freedom of expression. On this occasion, the Palestinian Postal Service Workers’ Union (PPSWU) would like to express its high esteem for all female and male workers in the postal sector in Palestine and worldwide, and their rights-based struggles, and reiterates the will and demands of workers and employees in the postal sector in Palestine:
1.       PPSWU calls upon the Palestinian consensus government to provide job stability for 120 workers in PalPost (the Palestinian public postal service), which belongs to the Ministry of Communications, through making necessary financial allocations, as these workers have spent more than 13 years working through temporary contracts, without job stability and without enjoying the benefits of fellow governmental employees
2.       PPSWU calls for accelerating the process of adoption of a law protecting trade union freedoms, as well as a fair social security law that will ensure a decent life to Palestinian workers
3.       PPSWU thanks the Communication Workers’ Union (CWU) in the UK for the decision of its general conference on April 24-30, 2015, to support the steadfastness of the Palestinian people and reinforce cooperation with Palestinian trade unions
4.       PPSWU sends its warm solidarity greetings to the members of the Canadian Union of Postal Workers (CUPE) on the occasion of their general conference to be held on May 2-8, 2015, and its expresses its full support to their struggle to maintain a public postal service in Canada and good working conditions
5.       Palestinian postal workers call upon their sisters and brothers worldwide to manifest their wide solidarity with the Palestinian people on the occasion of the commemoration of the Nakba on May 15, reaffirming the necessity to pursue advocacy campaigns on behalf of Palestinian rights, and expand and intensify the Boycott-Divestment-Sanctions movement (BDS)
6.       Palestinian postal sector workers in Palestine call upon the global union UNI to respect their independent decisions and accept the request for affiliation from their sole representative, the Palestinian Postal Sector Workers’ Union (PPSWU), condemning attempts to break the trade union unity in the postal sector in Palestine   
Long live Palestine! Long live the unity of postal workers
Palestinian Postal Service Workers’ Union (PPSWU)
