(en) Greece, Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Information on the fight to defend the Sunday holiday from the front of Thessaloniki (gr) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 7 Oct 2017 09:12:02 +0300

For four years now, the bosses of commerce are trying to completely abolish the Sunday holiday with the ultimate goal of working 52 Sundays a year. From the 2013 "7 Sunday" law, from the "pilot" implementation of the "52 Sundays" measure in the summer of 2014, from the "8th Sunday" to the end of 2014, from the 3 rd Memorandum of 2015 and the margin which leaves for "more Sundays" and the "2 additional conditional Sundays" at the end of 2016, we arrive in May 2017 and on "32 Sundays" based on the agreement of the SYRIZA government with the "institutions". ---- For 4 years Coordinating Against Sunday Work and "Liberated" Hours, it is present every Sunday that attempts to open the shops. The same happened on Sundays 10/9 and 17/9. ---- On Sunday, September 10, 2017, blockades on Tsimiski Street began at 10:30. Exclusions were made at H & M, benetton, calzedonia, pull & bear, vicko, flomar, intimissimi, english home, presentation, Bazaar and Public, and Coordinating Against Sunday Labor and Liberated Hours also included the blockade of the department store NOTS "that was done by the workers' union on it. The attitude of the employees in these shops was positive and the commercial movement was very subdued. At 12:00 it was the invited gathering at the contribution of Aristotle to Tsimiski. It followed a course on the commercial streets of the city, with a main focus on the Tsimiski and Mitropoleos streets, where there are many shops. After the end of the course, Coordinating against Sunday's work and "liberated" hours returned to "NOTS", supporting the club's exclusion for an hour and a half.

On Sunday, 17/7/2017, there were again blockades on Tsimiski Street, which started shortly after 10:30. The Bitsiani, H & M, pull & bear, Vicko, Public and NOTOS stores it was within them that access was blocked by protesters. Once again the attitude of the employees of the shops was positive. However, tensions have taken place between protesters and aspiring clients who, by their attitude, perceiving their role or not, act as the bomber of the bosses. The slogan "If you want to shop Sunday, prepare to work Sunday" directly condenses the reasons that no one should visit the stores on Sundays, thus supporting the measure that we want to have no personal time. Following the exclusions, it followed a course that started from Aristotelous Square at the height of Tsimiski and was once again moved to Tsimiski and Mitropoleos streets,

For years we have been experiencing ever more severe cuts in our labor rights, an increasing amount of exploitation by our bosses. The situation is known to all of us: wage and pension cuts, legal overtime, split hours, hourly employment, fixed-term contracts and, of course, good traditional black labor that continues to live and reign in all branches despite the trivial notices about her "battering". And over the heads of us, the unemployed: working black, working uninsured, working on Sundays, working beyond time, and dare to deny the simple solution: the armies of the unemployed are the best proof that capital is as good as our own class , the exploiters are silent.

Only united can we face the bosses and impose our right, otherwise we are doomed to work more and more, more and more cheaply, that time, that day they want and for as long as they want us before they send us back to the OAED queues.
That is why we call on workers and workers to get in touch with industry unions and industry initiatives, to set up new ones where they do not exist, to create workshops in each shop and to get in touch with coordination. It is necessary to understand the power that we have in our hands as the true producers of the wealth around us and based on our backs and with our weapon of class solidarity, to continue to work more and more dynamically to organize and to resist collectively inside and out from our workplaces.

We do not stop the fight until Sunday stops being a working day and we renew our appointment for the following Sunday on 8/10 at 10.00 Tsimiski with Aristotelous ...
