(en) ucl-saguenay: Agreement in principle to RTA: Attack of the employers in strategic retreat by Collectif Emma Goldman (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 2 Jan 2016 13:59:56 +0200

The signing of a principle between the electric Energy Union northern understanding and Rio Tinto Alcan multinational corporation took place last Thursday [i]. As were many labor disputes in the region in recent years, pension funds and the increasing integration of subcontracting in the workplace were part of the base of the Employer attacks against the quality of life Workers. Faced with these attacks, the latter / last voted overwhelmingly in favor of a strike mandate to their union when deemed necessary, whereupon was elaborated the tentative agreement. In summary, the employers' party withdrew its demands and new bases for pension schemes have been established for some time, but no significant progress among the items that were in the will of the employees and their union. Although the latter / last have secured their jobs, it should be noted that this balance is still only temporary and very fragile.

Indeed, the regional reality has repeatedly demonstrated the dependence of our economy to multinational corporations, sudden relocation, lockout [ii] and subcontracting, break gradually unions. Delegates local / local, unlike the high-ranking trade union confederations, struggling for many hours to represent their peers in dishonest negotiations while the employers' party continues to do everything so that the work environment becomes more repressive, unfair, and this may, outside any aspect be addressed by collective agreements as provided by law. By limiting itself to it, it will never be possible to deal on an equal footing with employers for whom these laws are written especially. It takes us out of the institutionalization of our struggles and professional division thereof. We must free ourselves from the constant threat of lockouts and relocation. In a society where even the strike inspires anxiety of the working class as to their comfort and material survival, it is imperative to extend solidarity to all and to all and create a trading environment that exceeds our extractive economy capitalist.

Without developing autonomy, workers, more easy-es-es to the less affluent thank you continue to employers. If at this time the attack ended in a strategic retreat, the long war that is the class struggle continues. Remain vigilant es and solidarity. Employees / workers, employees of public or private sector, unemployed / Artists and jobless, student-es, same fight!
