(en) Greece, "dynian horse" APO: [Patras] Intervention in MyMarket against employee dismissal [machine translation]

Date Mon, 18 May 2020 10:07:50 +0300

On the afternoon of Wednesday, May 13, an intervention was carried out outside Mymarket in Akti Dymaion on the occasion of the dismissal of an employee in Patras with the sole justification of consuming (within the store) a expired product (croissant) intended for the trash. ---- My Market is in the middle of a pandemic. In the face of employer terrorism, class solidarity is our weapon. The crisis to pay the bosses. ---- The text shared in the intervention --- "MYMARKET" ENJOY WORKERS - THE CRISIS OF CORONOSIS TO PAY THE BOSSES ---- "My Market" fired an employee in Patras with the sole justification of consuming (inside the store) expired product (croissant) intended for the trash can. ---- The employee was employed for 3.5 years in the store and the incident took place on Friday, April 30, 2020, where he was called by the Director and Deputy Director of the branch, under unacceptable conditions with voices and accusations of "theft", to sign his resignation. in order not to have criminal penalties for the (in-store) consumption of expired products.

This is one of hundreds of examples of employer arbitrariness in the midst of a pandemic - and not only - in a number of industries. The bosses want the workers to pay for the crisis once again. In the midst of a pandemic, the savage looting of the social base and the class attack on a number of conquests, rights and needs are being reorganized.

During the previous period of the pandemic and restrictive measures, the company recorded one record after another in its turnover and employed part of the staff with indicated employment, taking advantage of the recent anti-labor bills and "rubber" hours in the industry. Today, unpaid workers are unloaded with cheap pretexts and extortionate methods.

Employees in supermarkets and in key sectors of the supply chain continue to work in extremely dangerous and intensive conditions without adequate means of self-protection, without unhealthy work benefits, without diagnostic tests. In the same condition, thousands of workers are forced to work from home with telework, without providing the logistical infrastructure, with unclear hours and obligations, while the employer is already here for rotation or partial 15-day work and for even more flexible forms that will result in reductions in benefits and wages.

We are facing the specter of the deadly evolution of the COVID-19. virus pandemic. The vast majority of the social and class majority are at risk and thousands of people in our class are dying en masse around the world, deprived of the means to protect them.

The state and capitalist system of organizing society, which is already condemning millions of people to death from starvation, disease, and military operations, is fighting not against the evolving pandemic, but to keep their privileges intact, their political position in power. and financially strong. On the occasion of the evolving pandemic, a new round of attacks on workers and society is being prepared. What is presented today as "solidarity benefits" to the social base, tomorrow we will be called upon to pay many times over at a huge cost to the lives of millions of people who are already suffering from the unequal battle of our day.

In the face of generalized terrorism and repression, in the conditions of slavery and misery imposed by the state and the bosses in the workplace, there is another way. The way of organizing the workers, the resistance, the claim and the social-class struggle. The workers themselves, the unemployed, the young, the locals and the immigrants, knowing our real needs, we must take life into our own hands, organize and fight, collectively, self-organized and unmediated, in every social and workplace, in schools and colleges, workplaces, neighborhoods and streets. With class unions and workers' initiatives to shape the militant trade unionism of the base and to claim that it belongs to us,


No fired, no homeless, no hungry, no helpless and abandoned alone in the pandemic
