(en) Spanish workers solidarity request (corrected)

Date Wed, 26 Dec 2007 18:51:47 +0200

Friends & Fellow/Sister Workers: The Workers Solidarity F (WSA*) has recently
received the following information from our Spanish friends. These friends work
for the German auto-supplier Frape-Behr. Behr describes itself as "a specialist
for automotive air conditioning and engine cooling systems." --- The Frape-Behr
workers are facing job cuts. Although they have engaged in negotiations with the
company bosses and the Catalan State, these have led to a dead end, with
promises made by the bosses and State and then broken. --- The workers are
currently engaged in a plant occupation and urgently request your solidarity.
---- Although the workers are calling for peaceful and orderly pickets in front
of company owned plants and offices, they are also seeking letters of protest.
Please send copies of your protest letters and/or picket line pictures to
sindical@cnt.es, secretariado@iwa-ait.org, and wsany@hotmail.com.
Please find links to company locations and addresses on the company website
Yours in solidarity,

Urgent subject: Solidarity request with the workers in Frape BehrFrom the
National Confederation of Labor-IWA, Barcelona we are supporting to the workers
of the Frape Behr factory (sister company of the German Behr) in Barcelona. Behr
has reported a labor force adjustment plan (LFAP) to 50 workers and profit
limits. For three months the workers have rejected this offer.Up to now these
workers, CNT, FTC-IAC, UGT, CCOO, is occupying the factory to put pressure on
the Government to reject this labor force adjustment plan. CNT-Barcelona is
supporting to the workers with demonstrations and announcing to people this
dispute by means of the press.CNT ask you to support this fight with
demonstration against the Behr factories in your country. Besides it is
important to send support messages by emails or faxes to the Government asking
it to not support this LFAP. The Catalonian Government must declare in favor of
/ against this proposal and we hope the workers pressure, the social
mobilization and your support make the Government declare oneself against.The
next week (24th – 31st) we ask you to do demonstrations or gatherings in Spanish
Consulates or Embassies.
The workers in Frape Behr are fighting for our jobs and the future of 295 families.

The management of the company and the Catalonian Government have deceived us
into believing they would carry out the agreement in 2004, which means the
future of the factory in Barcelona. For a long time with negotiations, the Behr
management and the left-wing Catalonian Government will wish a merry Christmas
with a labour force adjustment plan, firing 295 workers. The Frape Behr workers
go on in the struggle for the continuity of the factory and for our jobs. We ask
your solidarity with the squatting that our colleagues are having.

We need your public demonstration in favour of our fight which is the same like

No to the sackings

Long live international solidarity labour!!

>From the International Workers Association (IWA/AIT*):
"As you were informed via email sent by the National Confederation of Labor
(CNT), workers of Frape Behr factory in Barcelona have occupied their factory
in struggle against plan of the company to fire 295 workers. The Behr company is
situated in Stuttgart, Germany, and it's specialized in manufacturing of car air
conditioning and engine cooling systems. Web presentation of the company is
available here: http://behr.de, and the link provided in the email of Spanish
is showing the list of Bahr locals in Germany and in other countries, among them
France, Czech republic, Italy and Brazil, but also USA and South Africa! The CNT
FRAPE union section has it's own web blog at the following address:
http://cnt-frape.blogspot.com/ ...During next few days IWA Secretariat will
coordinate actions in solidarity with Behr workers. We are aware that it is
holiday season in some parts of the world, but, as the CNT stressed, need for
solidarity is urgent, and it should be placed in practice as soon as possible
(31st of December being the last date). Minimum would be sending of protest
letters and faxes to Spanish consulates or embassies and Behr company, but also,
where possible, demonstrations or gatherings in front of consulates, embassies
or cultural centers should be organized (the list of Spanish consulates is
available here: http://www.mae.es/es/Embajadas+y+Consulados/embycon.htm).
We have already talked with [members of the German Free Workers Union] FAU

(where Behr company H.Q. are located) who will take actions. ...Long live
international workers solidarity!Ratibor Trivunacon behalf of the IWA Secretariat"
