Dear Mr. Leody Guzman,
President of BMP
On behalf of 70000 members of Japan Confederation of Railway Workers’ Unions (JRU), I would like to send this solidarity message to you.
I would like to offer you my congratulations to the 8th national congress of BMP.
I know BMP have made very strong movement for workers long time. We JRU is encouraged by your movement. Because we JRU also meet very difficult situation such as crack down from the government and the company. We have to learn each other and make solidarity cross a border to fight against capitalist.
JREU, the biggest affiliated union of JRU is preparing for strike action in March. This is the first time in the history for 30 years of JREU. The company want to divide the workers and bring workers into competition. We are calling this system will destroy group work of railway workers to operate trains in safety. So JREU is fighting against the company with all JREU member’s strength.
We believe our fight is encourage and assist your movement.
Again, I would like to offer you my congratulations to the 8th national congress of BMP.
Let’s fight together!
