The S.S.M. ( Labor Union of Waiters, Cooks and other workers in the food sector of Central Macedonia)
It was founded in Thessaloniki in 2010. In its years of operation the union has carried out, stood in solidarity and participated in labour struggles and claims for both its members and other colleagues. In the context of increased class competition, the SSM has participated in struggles and coordinations concerning wider labour issues outside the sector, strikes, movements concerning solidarity with migrants, has carried out interventions and events concerning public access to healthcare, housing, etc.
The Labor Union of Cook Waiters and other Food Workers is a grassroots union. This means that it operates through regular general assemblies, which are recognised as the only decision-making body and in which everyone participates equally and away from the logic of entrusting bureaucratic trade unionism, leaders and experts. It is open to all employees in the industry, except from bosses of course, managers, supervisors, fascists, sexists, homophobes, transphobes and those who try to draw votes or goodwill for their political party.
Campaign for the financial support of our labor unions
As grassroots unions we fight away from the patronizing and bureaucratic union of GSSE-ADEDY and we are part of the unmediated class struggle. The two unions are located at 7 Makryianni Street in Thessaloniki .Our main financial support comes from the subscriptions of our members and colleagues. During the pandemic and the strict measures our offices have remained closed which has made the payment of the rent and the operating costs more difficult. Especially now that our bosses are exploiting the pandemic in order to approve measures to make further profits on our backs all we have is class solidarity.
This campaign aims to raise the amount of 1100 euros to cover the operating costs of our offices in Makryianni 7 as well as legal expenses and operational costs.
