(en) France, SOLIDARITY WITH SERGE CNT* !!! - French Post Office versus a CNT Member

Date Tue, 02 Sep 2008 10:47:25 +0300

After the strike of May 2008 a mail carrier from the Bouches du Rhône region is
under attack. ---- Serge Reynaud, who works in Marseille has been summoned to
appear before the central disciplinary commission of the French Post Office in
Paris on September 10. His job is on the line. ---- May 14 through 31, 2008 CGT
and SUD called a strike against the project called "Mail Carrier of the Future".
This project involves restructuring the entire network by which mail is
transported and distributed and could threaten 1000 jobs in the region. It
involves closing down sorting centres, regrouping distribution centres, new work
norms and speedups, making workers responsible for their own replacements in
case of illness.

The Bouches du Rhône region has been a centre of resistance against
the "Mail Carrier of the Future". In October 2006 and March 2007 the
Post Office had to make concessions to the striking mail carriers.
Things got tough in 2008; strikers replaced by temps, court officials
present at each strike site, strikers listed as AWOLs etc. After 400
workers struck for 17 days the conflict was suspended by mutual

On June 19 fellow worker Serge Renaud was summoned by the bosses. He
is accused of having held a 5 minute speech on May 21 and of having
been among those who tried to get negotiations going by opening up a
boardroom. These normal strike activities are torn from their context
and presented as individual disciplinary infractions.

In solidarity with Serge, the International Committee of CNT calls upon
international soliadrity.

This solidarity could take diferent aspects :

- Send mails of solidarity to our International Committee
(international@cnt-f.org). We will forward these messages directly to
Serge ;

- Send faxes to the direction of the Post to protest about this
discrimination : 00 33 1 55 44 01 25.

Here is a draft in french language : "Nous syndicalistes, (name of your
organization and country), dénonçons les poursuites à l'encontre de notre
camarade Serge de la CNT PTT et facteur à Marseille 01 – Colbert à
Marseille. Un coup contre l'un de nous est un coup contre nous tous !"

("Us syndicalist from (...)condemn the charges against our comrade Serge,
CNT Postman in Marseille. An attack against one of us is an attack agaisnt
all !!!".

- Organise protest in front of french embassies or consulates in your
respective countries.

We wait your help dear comrades.

In solidarity

Jérémie, International Committee of CNT
* An antiauthoritarian anticapitalist syndicate
