Perama fatal accident ‘illustrates magnitude of problem in Greece’, says GSEE

The fatal injury of a laborer and the grave injury of two more workers at the Perama Shipyard Repair Zone on Monday “illustrates in the worst possible way the magnitude of the problem in our country,” the General Confederation of Greek Workers (GSEE) noted in a statement on Monday.

GSEE also emphasized that it has repeatedly warned about industrial accidents, asking for immediate and substantial measures to be taken, “so that we do not grieve other workers.”

“We ask for the umpteenth time from those in charge, to take immediate and substantial measures and to intensify all relevant checks and controls at workplaces. For today’s tragedy, we ask for the attribution of responsibilities, where these correspond to the punishment of those responsible.”
