Has died Felix Diaz Pardo, a history of trade unionism in Gran Canaria and a militant of Workers Commissions (CCOO). He was 18 when he appeared as a union representative at the fosforera company where he worked. “It is in the workers’ struggles, strikes and other demonstrations where he meets several comrades who will share many vicissitudes from the underground as the events of Sardina del Norte”, and together with them he built CCOO in Gran Canaria, the union said in a statement.
“We do not forget his exceptional contribution in some very difficult moments for the underground labor movement,” the statement continues. And he concludes: “In CCOO we pride ourselves and we have a collective memory to not forget people like Felix, who played a fundamental role in achieving freedom and democracy as well as social and labor leadership in union representation in companies. “
