(en) Poland, Workers Initiativ: Volkswagen: instead of slowing people down, slow down and reduce working time! [machine translation]

Date Tue, 15 Oct 2019 09:54:15 +0300


The Employee Initiative Committee operating in Volkswagen's Poznan plant has prepared a leaflet in connection with the layoffs planned by the company, which is caused by the automation of the production process. Below we publish its content. The leaflet will soon be distributed among VW employees. ---- We demand: instead of slowing people down, slow down and reduce working time! ---- The management board of VW Poznan plans to fire 750 people. They tell us that this is modernity. Redundancies and deterioration of working conditions #This is not modern. These are further changes that are expected to increase exploitation. # Ten years ago, the company strongly boosted the pace of work "for a period of global crisis." That crisis is long gone, and we are still working at a higher crisis. Employee Initiative supports automation, but without dismissal of employees. If thanks to automation there is no reduction in working time, slowing down the pace and improving conditions, who benefits from it? Only the board of Volkswagen and those who support it, while the crew again lose.

The dismissal plan hits the entire crew, deepens their divisions and weakens them. To stop the further deterioration of working conditions, we must respond with greater unification. Let's demand with one voice: slow down the pace, not people! Newer work organization must be used for the good of ordinary employees. After all, it is our work that makes this plant exist. We, associated in the Workers' Initiative, do not divide the crew into employees "more and less useful" to the board. If they threaten you with dismissal, let us know - regardless of whether you belong to any of the unions or not. We intend to defend everyone against dismissals, and most strongly those who actively oppose the deterioration of working conditions.
