(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #257 (Jan) - Sunday work: the struggle continues (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 1 Mar 2016 18:43:06 +0200

To generalize the Sunday and night work, Emmanuel Macron defined on September 23, after a sham consultation, no less than twelve international tourist areas (ZTI) in Paris, including to places we found very few tourists and are rather "intensive work areas." The string is big, the response of wage earners should be too! ---- Among the areas defined in September by the Minister of Economy as international tourist areas (ZTI), some were expected like the Champs Elysees or Boulevard Haussmann. More incongruous, those created in neighborhoods as little as tourist Olympics, Bercy or Beaugrenelle. The minister can defend himself, his will to generalize Sunday work and night is obvious. ---- It remains however to cross the course of the negotiations, namely getting an agreement that sets the level of counterparties in each company over eleven workers to open every Sunday (twelve stations are also affected). For the specific night work in these areas, it is necessary to go through a company agreement, especially the law setting the doubling of pay for hours worked between 9:00 p.m. and midnight.

Six months after the adoption of this law, where are we? In Sephora Champs-Elysées, an agreement on the evening said work was finally obtained after the rallying of the CFDT. It is a plebiscite (96.6% in favor), the result is sham: taking into account the participation of a few votes in favor of and not a narrow electorate, yes accounts 45%.

Macron, bosses, watch out for your shirts!

Moreover, as stated on the ballots, "being positive does not mean being willing to work evenings." At Darty, management statement on the opening of seven of its Paris stores under a 2010 agreement inapplicable in this case, two of the establishments concerned not being moreover not even located in ZTI. At Fnac, negotiations initiated at group level, to circumvent the CGT and SUD, the majority in Paris, did not lead to date. Finally, to Apple, the signing of a low-cost agreement was postponed due to the media coverage of its contents.

In department stores, the employers' union, the UCV, is struggling: despite a draft agreement revised upwards last month, the CGT, CFDT and even declared not to be signatories. It is therefore not surprising that a similar agreement had suffered the same rejection BHV following a referendum held on 22 November. Despite the pressure from management, the non won 640 votes, including those of many demonstrators called to participate in the election, against 623, between the CFTC and CGT, supporters not, GSC and who SOUTH rank at the vote.

The Click-P [1], the CGT and FO trade federations and the CFTC Paris, have since before the Council of State, which will decide in a few months, in order to cancel the decree and orders. The most valuable in the power relationship that endures to the government and the bosses still mobilizing trade wage earners themselves: thus, October 15, 2015, is more than a thousand of them to cry among other of "Macron, watch out for your shirt, your pants" who were on strike to join the Boulevard Haussmann, where the directions of the department stores, protected by the police, met to extort thinking in peace. Workers have not said their last word facing the Macron regression!
