(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #231 - Pensions: All Back! But especially the government (fr) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 04 Nov 2013 12:20:03 +0200

Pension reform is part of a policy of destruction of social gains to align the European employees of the Chinese employees. We must stop the descent into hell and fight for a communist end to capitalist globalization. ---- Ads August 27 had the merit of being clear. The PS-Greens government validates Sarkozy reforms to aggravate: payroll tax increases of 0.3% for the employee-es, up 0.3% of the "employer's share" (remember that the employer part c is actually still salary is said "deferred" that is to say the salary saved for later) increase in contribution years to 43 years for a full pension. Tax increase for retirees who raised a family of three or more children, in exchange for which it is again dangled a consideration of the hardship but only for the young and not 2015! To please the bosses, the government announced in the wake of a new lower "cost of labor" as if our work was costing bosses and while "credit competitiveness" will already bring 20 billion to employers in 2014!

Union positions

The block around the CFDT who do not participate in the events of September 10, accepts this new setback to the rights acquired by the employee-es. CGT, FSU and Solidarity have the merit of calling together this first day of mobilization. But the lesson of 2010 should not be forgotten: we then lost against Sarkozy despite massive protests lack of movement paralyzed the country. The issue is exactly the same: Holland will not succumb to a few events, even powerful. It must be made clear to employees es that he will have to win paralyze the country by a sustained movement of strikes and blockades. It is unclear whether workers will mobilize or to what degree. But the task of any employee organization that really wants to fight is to point out the issues and the height of the demonstrations required.

Good pension = full employment and good wages

Finance the consideration of the elderly is not the challenge that journalists are struggling to demonstrate. Let us first recall that the age of healthy aging is not declining. From later retired from this is sick. Like the rest, the working time is a deliberate and not the result of demographic changes relentless political choice.

Pensions and unemployment: the same fight!

The government is seeking "desperately" seven billion for pensions but is easily 6.5 billion to bail out again the bank Dexia, well known for selling to local credit rotten! In fact, restore full employment and / or raise wages enough to fill the coffers. CGT calculated as equal pay for men / women alone bring in 10 billion! This is what should be our line in this conflict and that links with all attacks that converge to restore "business competitiveness" magic formula which means leveling down social achievements with those of workers Chinese. The idea of ââleveling up curiously never mentioned ...

Immediately after the pension file, open renegotiations UNEDIC on compensation for the unemployed. It should again expect the worst despite the continued increase in the number of unemployed (journalists say because of the increase). We must now link the two mobilizations as the lengthening of working time is obviously the automatic increase in unemployment. Unfortunately unemployed movements are very weak and suffering from old divisions related to past battles. However, it is their role to initiate mobilization, without neglecting local public non-affiliates, without forgetting the existing rage across a segment of the youth excluded from any future prospects. This is also the meaning of the letter sent by Libertarian Alternative to these organizations to provide them urgently convene a wider mobilization unit to start the meeting.

General mobilization against austerity

Many other reasons to revolt against austerity measures should come to bind to the fight for pensions and allow to trigger the fall general strike necessary to reverse the course of events, the accumulation of losses in recent years:

Gel renewed for the fourth consecutive year the salaries of civil servants.

Wage negotiations deadlocked in professional sectors as in most businesses.

Increased income taxes (17% on average). In particular, the failure to take into account inflation in the calculation of taxable income tax will make hundreds of thousands of families who were not previously taxed.

Budget cut of $ 12 billion of state spending in 2014 would save (Ayrault promises) the police and the school, but so violently affect health, public transport, local government, etc ...

VAT increase of 0.4% on January 1.

"Green" tax whose contours will be specified in September but will not benefit birds.

Under the INA do not forget the acquired right for employers to challenge "for two years' wages and working time in order to" save jobs. " And add the challenge announced preferential tariffs of EDF employees, SNCF, Air France and others, because for the bosses there is no small savings.

Continued layoffs and closures.

In short, an endless inventory that every reader can usefully supplement before going event!

Resist and rebuild

Of course, we call for resistance not only to stop the case here and right now but to draw the project to another company and build the balance of power necessary to bring down the capitalist exploitation that devastates the planet and its inhabitants . This is in today we build communism tomorrow our struggles. This is also why we militerons not only for radical goals but also for greater creativity and self-mobilization.
