(en) Spain, National Confederation of Labour - CNT* calls for a general strike on March 29 (ca) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 10 Mar 2012 09:14:41 +0200

Against labor reform, cuts and attacks on the working class. CNT rejects any negotiations on rights won and demands the repeal of the Labor Reform. ---- The Confederal Committee of the CNT has agreed to call 24-hour general strike on 29 March, extending the call already made in Galicia and Euskadi announcement that will be formalized in the coming days. ---- CNT rejects any negotiations on the rights won by the working class struggles in years, so this strike calls with the main objective of immediately repealing the labor reform approved by parliament yesterday, which was considered a frontal assault against the rights and the lives of the working class, continuing the measures taken by the previous government, as the labor reform of 2010, the lowering of wages in public administration or the cuts in pensions and public services that the current government is deepening.

CNT calls for an end to an economic policy designed to make workers pay for the crisis of banking and employers, which has led to an intolerable number of unemployed and stops is growing and worsening impoverishment and the lives of the working class.

CNT also calls the strike against the cuts, the day before a State Budget that will be implemented in a brutal attack on public services and social rights.

CNT rejects the Agreement for Employment and Collective Bargaining reached by CCOO and UGT and the CEOE last February, in addition to the amendments proposed by these unions to parliamentary process of reform, rejecting them as a valid alternative, as it shares the spirit of reform and assumes the logic of the employers and the government, assuming that the output of the crisis must be determined by assignments on the rights of workers, starting by placing the working class in a position of weakness. The same logic and brought these unions to accept the delay of the retirement age to 67 years after the general strike of 29S.

For CNT strike from March 29 to be just the beginning of a process of increasing and sustained mobilization, to incorporate the whole of the working class and the most disadvantaged and affected by the capitalist crisis to curb aggression dynamics constant for our rights, laying the foundations for recovery and conquest of new social rights in the context of a profound social transformation.

All these reasons have led to the CNT itself to make a call on 29 March. With this call CNT wants to cover all who are committed to sustained real confrontation, to return the attacks against the working class with the same degree of forcefulness with which we are receiving, along with all those labor organizations that share these objectives and reject the political and social peace pact.

For CNT frontal rejection of politics and trade union bureaucracies model CCOO and UGT and discredited large sections of workers should not become excuses against mobilization and struggle but spurs to reinforce it from another form of unionism from direct action, autonomy, and mutual support. Given the magnitude of attacks we are suffering, the unit of employees is fundamental unity that has to be manifested from the bottom, from assemblies in workplaces and neighborhoods, demonstrations and pickets to make the mobilization against the perpetrators and beneficiaries of this situation: employers, banks and government, an unstoppable process that raises a barrier against the temptations to turn the rights of everyone in anyone's currency.

It is time for all workers, unemployed or active, retired, submerged, or precarious students say enough, let us not abandon the street to enforce our strength and our demands.

On March 29 all the streets, all on strike
