(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #282 - Undocumented: The 160 strikers win the victory (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 19 Apr 2018 10:37:17 +0300

In spite of the maneuvers of the employers, the judicial pressures and the often very difficult conditions of occupation, the workers and the workers gained their regularization in the seven companies occupied in Île-de-France. Not without internal debates, the CGT realized a beautiful demonstration of solidarity. ---- Launched on February 12, strikes with occupation in seven companies, for the regularization of workers and undocumented workers, culminated on March 23. ---- The fight took place under very different conditions in several departments of Île-de-France, with coordination ensured very effectively by the collective migrant CGT. The strikers work in a wide range of sectors: cleaning (STLG and Sepur), transport (Chronopost and GLS), construction (Défi Technology), catering (Event Thaï), Livre (France-Routage) ... Some are on permanent contracts, the most are acting. In this second case, temp boxes have sought to discard the order and vice versa, which obviously complicated the fight. The conditions of occupation have been difficult, especially with the cold of recent weeks. They turned to the virtual sequestration of the strikers in a case where the security guards threatened them:!

In most cases, it was the local CGT unions that provided a regular and sometimes permanent presence to support the strikers and help with their supplies. The CGT book trade union has also invested a lot of activists on the picket of a company in its field. The local union of Roissy-Airport was sentenced in summary to 40 000 euros of fine !

Several inter-stake solidarity rallies were organized as well as the investment of an interim agency. Although it is unfortunate that the group rejected the idea of participating in the anti-racist demonstration of March 17, the procession of strikers in the March 22 demonstration was very noticed.

Depending on their geographical location, some pickets have multiplied actions in the city to publicize the conflict and collect money. A battalion of activists was formed in one month !

For the CGT, this conflict was an opportunity to set back a priori among the workers of the sites concerned, including among the union members. Although the Secretary General of the CGT, Philippe Martinez, has moved in person on pickets, the debate has sometimes remained difficult in some directions of local unions and departmental unions that have not all played the game with the same energy. Some regretted that this conflict is taking up too much strength and finances in the middle of the preparation phase of March 22nd. Restoring their dignity to the 160 strikers by taking them out of hiding, however, has no price !
