At the same time the police detained the PAME Secretariat Member and President of Athens Tourism-Hotel Workers’ Union, Giorgos Stefanakis, leader of the great struggle of the Efood delivery workers, and Nikos Lavantsiotis President of the Select Service Workers’ Union.
Immediately PAME called for mobilization in the Acropolis Police Station demanding the release of the unionists, who, under the pressure of thousands of protesters, were released.
The Union Hotel Workers Union of Athens stated:
“It is clear that the government has set out to violently break the unions and the workers who are fighting while it seeks through unprovoked arrests and intimidation to terrorize those who resist the plans of the government, hotel owners and big chains who want to turn workers into slaves in order to expand their profits.
We will not submit!”
