In times of crisis of political institutions, civil society organizations such as trade unions have a fundamental role in the resolution of issues and to strengthen democracy as the highest form of political coexistence.
PSI and its affiliates in Venezuela have taken important steps toward creating a unified space for trade union action outside of political polarization, inviting the Venezuelan government to establish forums for dialogue in favour of workers’ rights and public services, which we will continue to do.
We will continue our work and we hereby send our union solidarity to all workers and the Venezuelan people. Only unity, social peace and dialogue can lead Venezuela to democracy.
The declaration has been adopted by the PSI Sub-regional Advisory Committee for the Andean region (SUBRAC)
