HAPPY MAY 1 INTERNATIONAL LABOUR AND SOLIDARITY DAY!

5/4/2021 9:50:56 AM

Our President Pevrul Kavlak, celebrated May 1 International Labour and Solidarity Day with a video message. Stating that May Day could not be celebrated in areas and streets this year due to pandemic conditions, he said: “However, we would like to crowd the squares in the streets, hand in hand and let ourselves go, to cry out our issues and demands all together. How much we would like to celebrate this significant day with gillyflowers in our hands, together at our workplaces in solidarity embracing each-other… But unfortunately, under today’s circumtances we can only make it happen via social media and through distant greetings… I would like to congratulate the May Day, the solidarity day of the whole working class.”

 

We are fighting with the problems created by cruel virüs which affects the whole Word for more than a year. The effects of the virüs which ruined our lives is increasing every passing day. Number of cases and death tolls on the rise compared to this time last year. Despite all the measures taken, vaccines, face covering obligations, social distance warnings, we are still far from seeing the light at the tunnel. But we will never give up our hope.  We are tackling with this issue as we have overcome many troubles that we have encountered in the past… Just like throughout the history of mankind. The human race will surely destroy this virüs one day… I believe that with all my heart.

 

As I expressed in my various speeches before, the heroes of this hard period are undoubtedly the ones who make their living through their own hands… The working class… The key workers in the healthcare sector… The ones who are helping those in need of healing under the harshest conditions. The one who works day and night to make our lives easier, to fulfil our needs. Those who spin the wheels in the industry, they are the ones that keep our economies alive. With the occasion of May the 1st, I would like to once again like to remind you that the efforts that have been put forward by the workers who are working for their lives is priceless… The debt that we owe to these people never ends… But on the other hand, the heroes of these hard times, the working class are also the victims. Workers are in the grip of Covid-19 on the other hand and on the other hand they are clamped by Code-29 in our country. They are struggling in between… Workers who close to become union members are sacked in the depth of winter. They are struggling with economic problems. They are crushed under low wage policies, cost of living, high inflation rate…

 

We want democracy though… We want to a democratic country in which we may benefit from our rights and freedoms till the end. We want to use our trade union rights, to be able to organize freely and we want to feel ourselves safe under our union’s roof. We want to get our rights to the fullest within a free collective bargaining sheme. We don’t want to be sacked in the depth of winter. We desire to bring bread to our home. We want to able to look at the faces our kids without ant trace of shame and misery. We don’t want to die in workplaces homicides…We want to work in this country and the and we want to a fair share from what we produce. We want to live in the right way…

We deserve all this and more… Because, despite everything, and the expense of our lives, we are working to death…Once again, I congratulate your May Day, the day of labour and solidarity, with my sincere wishes. Long live May the 1st.... Long live our struggle…”
