PSI extends full support and solidarity to its affiliates, other unions and the workers of India participating in the strike action. In the PSI Solidarity Message for All India General Strike was emphasized that: "We recognise the outstanding work of the energy sector unions, through the National Co-ordination Committee of Electricity Employees and Engineers who have organised across the country to oppose further privatisation of the essential public utility. As workers are seeking to increase the availability and affordability of energy through public ownership it is you, not governments, who are defending energy as an essential service. We are ready to support your ongoing actions to ensure the right to affordable energy is delivered and the rights of energy workers respected.”
