GREEN LEFT STATEMENT
"Green Left applauds the undertaken by Alberto Durango as a UNITE shop steward and a leader of the Latin American Workers Association. City cleaners, mainly migrant workers undertaking vital work supporting the wealthiest and most fortunate in our society - are exploited and marginalised and Alberto's work to defend their rights is vital. To steal David C. Coates' famous quote - "an injury to one is an injury to all" - it is disgraceful that Alberto has been targeted and sacked because of his union activity and Green Left stands in solidarity in his defence, and in defence of all workers."
"The Green party Trade Union Group fully endorses the Green Left statement on Alberto Durango and supports the campaign for his reinstatement and for and end to the victimisation of migrant workers." (P.Murry GPTU Secretary pp GPTU)
