(en) ait russia: Russia: Epidemic and Strikes [machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 May 2020 09:47:53 +0300


As in other countries, the authorities and entrepreneurs in Russia use the epidemic as a cover and a pretext for a massive attack on workers. There are reductions in workers, cuts and delays in salaries. Different categories of workers respond to this with resistance and strikes. ---- So, in Novokuznetsk on April 30, drivers of private shuttle buses went on strike. They are protesting against the "transport reform" planned by the city authorities, retaining only 50 routes out of more than 80. As a result of the strike, more than 100 buses (according to other sources, 250) failed to enter the routes. The strike caused a transport collapse. The Zavodskoy and Ordzhonikidzevsky districts remained almost without public transport; problems were felt in the Kuibyshev and Novoilinsky districts. The mayor of the city created an operating center and promised to punish those responsible. To disrupt the strike, the governor, according to the mayor, sent bus-breakers from other cities to Novokuznetsk. On May 1, the strikers went to work, but promised to continue the fight ( https://tayga.info/154537; https://vashgorod.ru/novokuznetsk/news/1133102; https://vashgorod.ru/novokuznetsk/news/1133136 ).

In May 1 in Novocheboksarsk, a strike against the conditions of the aggregator was organized by Yandex taxi drivers. At about 12:00, taxi cars with Yandex and Uber stickers began to drive up to the parking lot of the supermarket. When asked what they were doing here, the drivers at first answered sparingly: "Nothing, just talking." Then several dozens of cars gathered, and taxi drivers talked about their "silent strike" against the aggregator. "There are about 50 of us here." Yandex "throws all people" on bonuses. People work from morning till night to earn money. Prices have fallen, bonuses are constantly withdrawn. We need to raise prices. After all, there are orders, but the tariffs are still low. Yandex takes away its percentage, the taxi fleet takes. As a result, we work for a penny, "taxi drivers complain (https://pg21.ru/news/64141)

Unfortunately, instead of demanding that the aggregator increase their wages, these taxi drivers are ready to solve the problem at the expense of consumers - they demand to raise the fare. Anti-solidarity actions directed against other people of work, and not the owners, do not deserve support.

Earlier, taxi drivers Cheboksary went on strike. The case then ended in repression in the form of fines.

On May 12, in Moscow, Mosgortrans employees locked up in a dormitory protested in a dormitory in the dormitory building for Mosgortrans State Unitary Enterprise employees due to difficult living conditions. The fact is that since mid-April, since the first cases of COVID-19 were detected among workers, all residents of the dormitory of the capital's public transport were quarantined. At the same time, workers report that emergency doctors refused to hospitalize many people with high fever, and those who were nevertheless taken to the hospital did a CT scan of their lungs and drove them back to the hostel. The fact that part of the dormitory prisoners escaped outside, became known to journalists from the Moscow Horn, they arrived at the place when the excitement calmed down, they called the police to the incident. Employees of Mosgortrans reported on camera from the windows of their home that for many days they kept both healthy people and those infected with coronavirus in the same rooms. It is forbidden to leave the building, no one can even go out for five minutes, especially to the store, and the quality of food delivered to the locked employees is not satisfactory. In turn, the leadership of Mosgortrans, justifying the current situation, refers to the orders of Rospotrebnadzor. Mosgortrans employees also reported that they did not have sick leave in their hands, as a result, they could not receive either normal wages or compensation payments. On the day of payroll, employees of the capital's transport company received derogatoryly low amounts over the past month - from 200 to 5,000 rubles, and this despite that they have to pay for living in a dormitory, and for many of the workers they also have families. It all comes down to the absence of sick leave, which people can only get in polyclinics, but they cannot move around the city or even leave the hostel. As a result, unrest began today in the Mosgortrans hostel, immediately the police and the Russian Guard arrived at the scene. Security officials promised to detain the most ardent activists as "instigators of an unauthorized public event," allegedly held under conditions of a self-isolation regime. However, this has not happened to date. Recall that at the end of April the Mosgortrans hostel, located on Krzhizhanovsky Street, was quarantined by coronavirus. According to unconfirmed data, 15 people revealed COVID-19. In total, 57 people live in the hostel ( and many of the workers also have families.

Meanwhile, the Open Week merchandiser strike continues for a second week. The strikers refuse to go to work until they have been paid wage arrears and given sufficient protective equipment. Throughout this week, the agency's management continued to feed the workers promises: the April salary should be paid in full on May 10, but the merchandisers were told that it was worth waiting for it only on the 15th. And many have not been paid yet for February and March! At the beginning of the week, the workers were promised to issue settlement sheets, but still have not done even that. Only on Friday did the leadership apparently realize that the empty promises of the workers would not satisfy and would not lead to the cessation of the strike, and began to pay the strikers the money they had paid. But - not to all and not in full! They promise to pay the remainder after the holidays, on Tuesday, but workers have no faith in these words. Merchandisers intend to continue the strike until all their requirements are fully met.
