(en) liberta salonica: Coordinate Action Against Sunday Work and Freed Time: Concentration Against Sunday Work - 1/4 (gr) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 5 Apr 2018 07:58:15 +0300

"Liberated" hours-work on Sunday, rubber we did all our lives ---- The Coordination of Action Against Sunday Work in Thessaloniki and Athens has been on the road for over three years, fighting against the abolition of Sunday's holiday , which adds to the more and more flexible working relationships and timetables, unpaid work, on hunger wages. His action surpassed the inertia of the Federation of Private Employees of Greece and the Union of Merchants who, in their best, simply declared a strike without giving the fight on the road, the only point that employees can gain: with strikes, strikes, with conflicts with various aspects of repression (bosses, "indignant consumers", media, police). This long battle already counts the first victories. ---- Despite the adoption of the 4th Memorandum that supplemented the institutional framework for the operation of retail stores 32 (+6) Sundays per year, the implementation of the measure stumbles on workers' resistance. In several shops there was a mobilization by the workers themselves , who claimed and eventually enforced their right to free time, striking the Sunday when the store was supposed to open (notos galleries in Thessaloniki, public in Athens). It is up to the workers themselves to break the fear, to organize themselves in assemblies and unions and to collectively claim their own interests.

What we live in or trade is clear: We want to work more and more (7 out of 7), more and more elastic (split, part-time, beyond the stated hours), more and more cheap (semi-insured or uninsured, without collective agreements, with subordinate wages, without triennias and allowances, without paid overtime).

For our part, having decided to follow up on this fight, we are proceeding to protest meetings at the commercial center of Thessaloniki on Sunday 1 April, as well as on Sunday 6 May. And somewhat like that, we are determined to continue for the next Sunday (May-October) for what stores in the industry are trying to be open, based on the rage and the will for practical resistance that will be expressed by the workers themselves in these shops.

They rely on our own fear and our defeatism, thinking that the ax of the unemployment hanging over the heads of all of us will make us accept everything without resistance. The spark of the race that was lit in large branches of the industry spreads out. And it is this spark that reminds us that when we stand next to each other, when we respond collectively to our bosses, the upper hand is we:
