No more blood in the struggle for a living!

The Pancyprian Federation of Labour (PEO)  held a Pancyprian Conference on Safety and Health issues at Work on 24 October.

More than 200 delegates, members of PEO local committees and health and safety committees took part in the Conference. Representatives of other trade unions and employers’ organizations, the Chairman of the Parliamentary Labour issues Committee and representatives of the Department of Labour Inspection of the Ministry of Labour also attended the Conference.

The purpose of the Conference is to document the problems and shortcomings in the implementation of the Health and Safety Law and to submit proposals that will lead to a change in the current prevailing negative situation. At the same time, the Conference will focus on the need to increase trade union militant’s attention and commitment to Safety and Health issues.

At the beginning of the Conference, a video on accidents at work was shown, which have increased dramatically lately. One minute’s silence was held in memory of the victims of accidents at work.

The Conference ended with the approval of a memorandum to be handed to the Minister of Labour.
