THE NEED FOR UNIONS AND COLLECTIVE AGREEMENTS IS SEEN AND VALIDATED DURING THE MOST IMPORTANT MOMENTS FOR WORKERS!
THE SOCIAL DIALOGUE IN WHICH SSM PLAYS A CRUICAL ROLE GIVES RESULTS!
The most important thing in these hard times is workers to be united and unionized and together with the unions to provide bigger rigths in the Collective Agreements than those stipulated by law. We shall never allow rights to be respected only by ONE side!
