(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #244 - Mobilization of 16 October on Social Security: Learning from failure (fr, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 02 Dec 2014 08:55:09 +0200

On October 16, demonstrations were organized by the CGT, often in isolation, on Social Security and against austerity (for some regional federations and unions). These events were a failure, alas. What conclusions can be drawn in rallying in the streets to working people and the unemployed? ---- In Paris, the morning of the 16th, the general union CGT book (which also had blocked the exit of the national dailies) organized a rally in front of the dynamic leadership of Team to support the fight against employees in a change of collective agreement. 250 workers for this occupation a success. At the same time the CGT Metallurgy resumed his account of what had become a tradition: a rally in front of the Auto Show. In previous years, these gatherings convened by company unions in struggle (Continental, Goodyear, PSA-Aulnay ...) gathered a thousand workers determined to enter into force in the lounge, which caused violent clashes with police. These combative rallies were held without any help from the federation. This year, the federation decided to call, but too late ... less than 200 people, including many political activists outside the profession. The story carries meaning.

The will to unite

Mobilization can not be decreed by the union leadership. That's when workers are fighting the union leadership can help (or not) to maximize mobilization. Although the SGC provides the largest contingent of protesters in general, the desire to unite the most widely is right and necessary. Lean processions of 16 October reminiscent. From this point of view, it is useful to question the CFDT. In contrast, submit its choice to the decisions of the CFDT is not tenable any longer. Management confederal CGT draws a first positive assessment of bilateral meetings that she wanted to take this fall by refusing the idea of an inter offered by FSU then by Solidarity. Management confederal CGT refused where an inter-CFDT would not come! And now announces that the joint work with the CFDT is possible but the conditions for Inter are still not satisfied!

Social Dialogue

The CGT must break with this wait and choose to build the Inter struggle that is possible: CGT-FSU-Solidarity with the possibility that the FO joins at least on some occasions. This Inter could then launch a plan for a real mobilization, not a helpless Quarterly day but why not a week of strikes, protests and blockades?

The debate on the famous "social threshold" hides much worse. MEDEF in negotiations between "social dialogue" with uncompromising political declaration calling for an end of social law based on a vision of "class struggle" and the end of the hierarchy of norms in favor of vague law framework declined "freely "in industries and companies. He claims a merger / destruction of representative bodies (staff representatives / committee cntreprise (EC) / EC groups / HSC). Six working sessions are planned until December and the government warned it was prepared to legislate on failure ... The worst is still ahead of us.
