It adds that the content of the letters “clearly shows the attitude, behavior, actions and omissions of the employer in relation to the unjustified and without legal or good reason refusal or failure to provide all facilities to the ASTEPAIK Union”.
The Union also refers to its “different and/or unfavorable” treatment by the EAC in comparison with the other unions of the Authority and for which it reserves every legal right and interest to present
It also states that “employee representatives in the EAC should enjoy effective protection against any action that may be detrimental to them”.
In these actions, according to the announcement, include dismissal due to their status or activities as workers' representatives, union membership, or their participation in union activities as long as they act under the laws of collective agreements or other arrangements that have been agreed upon together”.
Concluding, ASEPAIK states that workers' representatives must be provided with “such facilities within the company, to assist them in the rapid and efficient fulfillment of their duties”.
