Call for industrial action on RIVA sites in Europe

Dear colleagues,

Our colleagues from the RIVA owned sites in Trier and Horath have been on strike for 13 weeks. They fight for collective bargaining and better working conditions: in contrary to their colleagues from the other three German sites, the RIVA management denies them the collective agreement. Thus, the wages in Trier and Horath are 20 to 30 % lower than the regional collective agreement! We want to show solidarity with our colleagues and send a signal to the RIVA management.

As agreed during the solidarity conference organised last week by IG Metall (see attached joint statement), trade unions with members in all of RIVA’s implantations in Europe are called to take action, and especially:

  • Ensure that no work is performed in other RIVA sites with the purpose of breaking the ongoing strike at Trier and Horath
  • Send solidarity statement to the 130 workers on strike at Trier and Horath
  • Participate in the week of industrial action which is planned from the 17th to the 24th of September

IndustriAll Europe fully supports RIVA workers at the Trier and Horath plants and IG Metall in their fight for their right to a collective agreement and fair wages in line with IG Metall’s wage agreements. IndustriAll Europe also calls, together with IndustriALL Global Union, on RIVA management to go back to the negotiation table without any further delay.

In Solidarity,

Luc Triangle

General Secretary
