Their announcement in detail:

“Our Association, from the very first moment, requests and will continue with persistence, to demand the awarding of Justice as we are angry to see the lack of progress in the investigations, with the result that a year after the fatal accident, the judicial process has not even started!

Unfortunately, Greece holds the sad lead in occupational accidents which continue to increase, with geometric progress. The root cause is government policy, which has methodically undermined control mechanisms and left workers unprotected to be sacrificed on the altar of employers’ profit.

A year after the tragic event, STA.SY not only has not taken any action whatsoever to protect its workers, not only has it not formulated the necessary procedures to deal with similar incidents, not only is it deaf to the calls of the Trade Unions so that we do not experience something similar again fact, but it has placed the issue of security low on its agenda. Perhaps the issue of “our own children” is more important.

The time has come for all workers, united, to demand that the control mechanisms are really reformed and strengthened, so that employers’ negligence stops and effective safety measures for workers, in all workplaces, begin to be taken.

We don’t forget Peter!

We keep him alive inside us

and we demand justice for his untimely death!”
