New Communist Party of Britain
The undersigned Communist and Workers’ Parties welcome the mobilizations of the workers and the youth across Europe against the EU Working Time Directive and the respective report (Cercas Report) that are discussed in the European Parliament. This directive does not only aims to annihilate elementary workers’ rights but also pursues to deliver a blow to the organized class-based trade union movement.
We extend our solidarity and support to the struggles of the class-based trade unions that oppose the extension of the working hours up to 65 per week, vehemently reject the distinction of the working time in “active” and “inactive” as well as the further flexibilization of the industrial relations.
