(en) cgt.org.es: Press release: Comparative grievances, politicians and mega-fire (ca, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Aug 2018 10:47:38 +0300


The first major forest fire of the season has been spreading with unusual virulence. And not only because of the new climate and environmental context, warned long ago and repeatedly by the collective of forest firefighters. The political, social and professional context has led to an extremely flammable fuel supply that has unleashed a mega fire in the minds of the services of forest firefighters throughout Spain. We, the professionals of all this, those who never left because we are where the TV does not arrive, those who die in the vacuum that remains between the fire and the rest of the world, we can not take it anymore. Accustomed to spending sleepless nights among the embers and ashes of calcined arsons, we can not bear, however, the apathy with which we are treated and mistreated by the managers of all this nonsense.

A few days ago, the central government now headed by Pedro Sanchez, opposed the salary increase of the forest firefighters of the Valencian Community, alleging that there was a grievance comparative with other autonomous communities. A rise that was nothing other than an adaptation to new functions and new categories.

We want to explain to Maria Jesus Montero, Luis Planas, Ximo Puig, Pedro Sanchez and any present or future politician who will cross our path, which is a grievance.

A grievance is that emergency professionals lose their lives in fires with agricultural pawn contracts and miserable salaries, commanded by officials who charge double for doing the same. A grievance is to take the service of a professional who has dedicated his whole life to fires but age, his legs begin to fail, while in public administration there is a second activity. A grievance is entrusting month to month an essential service of structural character to an instrumental company managed by billionaires, when several courts of autonomous accounts, the court of accounts of the State and even the European Union have already said that this is an abuse. A grievance is the great temporality suffered by workers in the sector despite constituting a structural service of the administrations. A grievance is to keep a professional glued to the phone 2,282 hours a year, between 0 and 59 cents / hour, when in any public emergency service the localized guards compute as effective work time. A grievance is forcing you to wash at home with the clothes of your wife and children, an intervention suit full of carcinogenic toxins, while the public system is responsible for an external company that has to certify each wash. A grievance is to enter an urban interface with your paper mask and your suit of € 50, when others enter with autonomous breathing equipment, full-face helmets and four-figure suits. A comparative grievance is running between ashes and temperatures of 50ºC uphill with 30 kg and 65 years behind on the orders of an official who retires before 60.

Because this group is going through so badly, that the relationships that have been woven between the devices of different autonomous communities have created fraternal bonds that are far above the envy or the comparative grievance. The struggle of some is the struggle of all. The strike in Valencia is supported by Madrid, Galicia or Seville. As they would say in the novel by Alexandre Dumas: "all for one and one for all".

Therefore, it only fits in a petty head to think that some autonomous community will feel aggrieved by colleagues who only ask for what they deserve. And if what is feared is the effect called, gentlemen ... look around. In Galicia, the Government of Feijoo has the forest agents of the Xunta on strike, and they have put a minimum of 100% services violating one of the most sacred rights of any worker. But it is that in Madrid, the government of Angel Garrido also has the forest firemen of the Emergency Agency with strike, rallies and 24-hour strikes throughout the month of August. In Andalusia, the Board of Susana Díaz has the forest firefighters of the Infoca with enclosures in the Forest Defense Centers. In Aragon, the professionals of the SARGA have also mobilized to extend their hiring period that did not reach even half a year and to claim the category of forest firefighter. And we can not forget the movement initiated by the BRIF of the whole State, which were more than 100 days of strike, voluntarily going to the fires and that have not achieved practically anything more than a minimum agreement that they continue leaving in the misery.

Contagion effect? No, gentlemen. This is how a mega fire works. When the precariousness of the collective reaches its flammability range and the spirits are heated above the point
