(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #231 - Subcontractors SNCF: copy Strike in cleaning (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 13 Nov 2013 14:48:50 +0200

In May 2013 a 12-day strike broke Charenton (94) in the cleaning company USP subcontractor of SNCF responsible for cleaning the TGV South East network. ---- The working and cleaning workers were massively mobilized es to fight against the exploitation and degradation of working conditions. In fact, while in 2008 there were 250 employee-CDI're working on the site 3x8h, there were more than 200 CDI before the strike, the rest of the work is outsourced to another company and with a heavy reliance on temporary workers, for the greater benefit of the financial management of the USP and the final station. This is an illustration of the widespread harm to the SNCF subcontracting with deleterious social dumping logic implementation at the expense of the working class.

Widespread poverty.

Moreover, because of the infernal cadences, the majority of workers suffering from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) important, therefore health problems directly to poor working conditions. In total, chronic understaffing, discriminatory practices, problems with premiums, low wages, working conditions deteriorated became unbearable. And as threatened a new project management USP impose flexitime, unionized employees SUD-Rail organized upstream strike was triggered when leave of May, a period of major departures TGV .

Building a majority strike

He first had to overcome several obstacles: a division of work teams alternating in several nationalities orchestrated by management, a strong union division with delegates from other unions eating openly in the hands of management and who will participate not to strike. In the end, the strike has been overwhelmingly followed by workers with occupation site day and night daily general meetings, picketing, collective meals, strike funds with raising solidarity actions station Lyon to make it visible and put pressure on the train. To break this majority strike, management USP, with the active complicity of the management station, has used every means possible: bailiffs continuously attempts to replace striking workers by temporary staff and USP and SNCF, provocations and intimidation. .. But the determination of the strikers during the 12 intense days, active solidarity railworkers site and especially SUD-Rail helped win the strike.

The victories of the strike

The majority of claims were so hard-won: creation of 40 permanent positions with temporary priority for existing and hiring criteria excluding the shenanigans of the past allocation of a premium quality all-employee es-es recently hired; shelved the project schedule flexibility, an investigation of the HSC (Health, Safety and Working Conditions Committee) on working conditions, elimination of redundancy measures for strike against strikers coincidentally delegates South Rail. Since then, the union team South Rail was reinforced by the arrival of some delegates from other unions who participated in the strike, thus positioning against their corrupt leaders. And South Rail has since become the majority in HSC, with the desire to use all union tools to enforce better working conditions. Other victories are not included in the agreement to end the strike is also important for the future participation at the forefront of women strikers throughout the strike, solidarity between workers in the private sector and railroad- es, workers and workers-are proud to have been able to maintain a balance of power and important to win this fight.
