Stop all non-essential work, Swiss workers say


This 27 March 2020 video says about itself:

Allesandro Pelizzari, general secretary of Switzerland’s largest trade union Unia, calls for shutdown of all non-essential work immediately to combat the spread of coronavirus.

Speaking at the UK organised online meeting, “Workplace collective action to slow coronavirus”, he said “As soon as the government announced the lockdown, we went out and blocked construction sites the next day…

Build up coherent political demands, with the demands coming from the workers. So shutting down every non-essential economic activity, security measures for people working in essential activities, and welfare for the people staying at home because they’ve lost their jobs.”

Union general secretaries in the UK: are you listening? Time to get organised ourselves. Join the Facebook group: Coronavirus Support Group for Workers.
