PSI and EPSU echo the call of the UN Security Council as the very good site generic levitra cheap number of killed civilians grows. EPSU and PSI call on the Israeli government and Palestinian parties in Gaza to immediately cease fire and prevent further escalation of the conflict which has already killed 1 Israeli and 200 Palestinians (at 16th July) including women and children and lead to numerous people being injured, homes being demolished and many fleeing to escape the violence.

The rocket attacks of cialis brand'>cialis brand Hamas and http://youarenothere.org/cialis-brand bombs of the Israeli army threaten people, homes and workplaces. We echo the call of the UN Secretary General Ban-Ki-moon for a ceasefire as demanded by the UN Security Council last Saturday (12 July).

Healthcare workers killed by Ebola’s worst outbreak ever

ebolaThe global trade union federation Public Services International condemns the preventable deaths of dozens of healthcare workers, killed on the job by Ebola because they did not have the http://youarenothere.org/female-levitra-pills necessary tools and equipment. The current Ebola outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone is the worst ever and the first to spill widely across several countries. Ebola has no cure, but can be diagnosed and www.michigantu.org treated. Treatment requires intensive care and close contact between the patient and the healthcare worker. 

Treatment can save lives, but should not kill healthcare workers!

It is a tragic reminder to we like it canadian viagra for sale national and international authorities that basic public health requires adequate investment both in healthcare workers and in health infrastructure to fight disease outbreaks of this kind. Rosa Pavanelli, PSI General Secretary, warned: “We cannot accept pitiful excuses, whether from health ministers or donor agencies.  Health workers must have the tools to do their jobs. All whose work brings them in contact with Ebola victims must have the protective gear.  Our members are dying because of unsafe working conditions, this is criminal neglect.”

Harris v. Quinn: PSI stands with all unions in the USA in the fight for social justice

psi_logoPublic Services International (PSI) condemns the continuing attacks on trade union rights for public sector workers in the USA. The conservative majority of http://www.advancedimagesonline.com/soft-tab-viagra the US Supreme Court this week, in Harris v. Quinn, attacked the rights of home care workers and invites further legal challenges.  This decision is the result of years of plotting, manipulating and massive financing from neo-conservative pressure groups.  It demonstrates the growing corporate power in the USA, and confirms their strategy of undermining all trade unions. 

Home care can be a much more affordable and humane alternative to institutionalisation of the sick and elderly.  It is a fast-growing field, but marked by low wages and http://www.kirschnerconcerts.com/pill-price-levitra benefits, poor training, and little respect for workers.  Home care workers, by the very nature of their work, are isolated.  Providing care for people in their homes is difficult, stressful and demanding.  It is perhaps no coincidence that the rx online viagra majority of home care workers are women.  US trade unions are protecting these isolated workers with innovative organising strategies.  It is exactly these innovative organising strategies that the Supreme Court is ticoon.com seeking to undermine.
