(en) Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Concentrations Against Sunday Work: 10 & 17 SEPTEMBER (gr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 13 Sep 2017 13:21:20 +0300

For 4 years, the bosses of commerce have been trying to end the holiday altogether 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". This development has been marked by strong pressure from governments, capitalists and their various mechanisms , such as statutory SMEs, towards us workers forto accept the total dominance of the market in our lives . The abolition of the Sunday holiday is a measure that is aggravating the difficult situation that we are experiencing as workers, with overstatement, but also wasting wages or even the failure to pay accrued salaries, dismissals and so many other incidents of employer terrorism. And of course, the abolition of Sunday's holiday is a measure that, very soon, seems to be generalizing in many other industries too .

And if it has not been completely abolished so far this Sunday holiday is primarily due to collective labor reactions. Back then, we have a long struggle, with major battles in and out of workplaces, with strikes and strike strikes , interventions , demonstrations , Giving this competition every Sunday that attempted to circumvent our rights. Through this struggle there have been steady steps towards our organization, the collectivization of our colleagues themselves and the emergence of a series of issues from the point of view of labor interests.

Mass strikes of 16 July that lasted more than 2.5 hours and interventions on the 23rd of the same month are obviously not enough. With big bosses and multinationals setting the pace even on Sundays in August, they have a proven "hoax", we realize that in front of us we have the great powers of commercial capital, determined to turn into a habit, despite the temporary cost to their turnover, the Sunday work. Habit for both consumers and workers themselves.

The battle to defend our free time has not stopped by the passage of a bill, nor is it going to stop in front of their greed. We will do our best to fight for it to exist and we can enjoy our non-working time, our rest, our families, against 7 to 7 that begins to become a rule. To do what goes through our hands does not mean that we can defend ourselves by conquering the entire working class and the employees in this case. We are at the point that or will share a common struggle to which and will win or will share one universal silence that will lead and to share our defeat .

At this crucial point, it is important not only not to weaken our resistances, but rather to dampen, network, organize to cut the appetite for the bosses. 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. For this we call the workers and the workers to come in contact with the unions and the workers in the industry initiatives, to set it up news where there are, To create workers' assemblies in each shop as recently happened with COLLEAGUES at Leroy Merlin, Public, Media Markt and get in touch with the 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.




Coordinate action against Sunday work and freed hours
