THE GENERAL STRIKE FOR NOVEMBER
· AGAINST THE ATTACK TO THE PENSIONS
· AGAINST THE PRIVATIZATIONS
· AGAINST THE REDUCTION OF THE PUBLIC AND
SOCIAL SERVICES
· AGAINST THE ATTACK TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL
· FOR WAGE INCREASES - FOR THE RIGHT TO THE HEALTH
· TO THE DEFENSE OF STRIKE AND OF FREEDOM OF
UNIONS
· AGAINST THE CAPITALISTIC GLOBALIZATION

THE ITALIAN SYNDICAL UNION (U.S.I.) HAS
PROCLAIMED THE GENERAL STRIKE TOGETHER TO
THE OTHER LABOR UNIONS OF BASE.

The Unione Sindacale Italiana, historical Confederation of
self-managed libertarian unions and of local professional
unions, proclaims for all the public and private employment the
national strike. All this for an alternative and ecological
development, for the best quality of life and work, for the
employment for all the employees not on the regular staff,
against the attacks to the working class rights, to the defence
of national negotiations, of freedom of strike, of freedom of
unions.

The UNIONE SINDACALE ITALIANA (USI - Italian
Workers Union) was founded in 1912 in Modena during the
"Direct Action" National Congress by the revolutionary
Labour Chambers. USI was on the hot line during the
so-famous and historical "red week" of 1914 and during the red
1919-20 when USI started the occupation and
self-management of industries. Its adherents (during those
years they were about 300.000) had to suffer the fascist
persecutions.
Only in the last 1970's it was possible to build again a national
net and organization. Its presence and activity amongst the
self-organized workers started since the 1990 Rome
Congress; and from that year USI is in continuous expansion
in the public and private sectors. Faithful to its own tradition
USI supports class' struggle and defines itself like the only
one revolutionary self-management labour union. The class
struggle involves all the world countries.
For this reason USI believes this intemationalist mobilization
against masters and prevailing classes as necessary and not
eludible. Unitary battles against militarist, racist and
nationalist tendencies and against neo-liberalism are (from
time out of mind) a fundamental aim of USI.
