We congratulate the steadfast activity already undertaken in order to improve the position of all waterside workers including the DPW workers who are soon to enter into negotiations alongside our Patrick comrades.
We give our unequivocal solidarity and support to the already impressive struggles undertaken by Patrick workers and commit to ongoing total support for the Patrick campaign recognising that the outcomes of Patrick directly relate to all waterside workers.
We are all MUA members first and employees of various companies second and we will continue to work and support our comrades at Patrick as we know that unity and resolve will be returned in any struggle of DPW workers. Our aims are for each other and for the greater good of all waterside workers.
One in all in and unity across the workers at Patrick and DPW.
