(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire AL #305 - Syndicalism, Union freephone number: Hello comrades, boho... (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Like the CGT, the Union Syndicale Solidaires has, from the first days of confinement, opened a hotline. Hundreds of workers wanting to defend themselves called her. First assessment of the experience. ---- " Hello, I'm calling you because I'm a roofer in a construction company, and I need information. We have a colleague who is sick from Covid-19 where I work, the chief says that since everything has been cleaned up, that we can continue to work, but we, in the team, we are afraid, we would like to know what that we can do. " ---- This is typically the kind of appeal that the "hotline" of Solidarity receives each day. Since March 30, hundreds of workers, mostly from the private sector, but also from the public service, have called him to find out about their rights and ask for help to protect their lives and their working conditions. job. This shows the usefulness of this kind of tool.

Reaching the most threatened fringes of the workforce
With him, it is a question of touching the fringes of the less unionized wage-earners, and whose rights are the most threatened: temporary workers, employees in shops, in the building and public works and more generally in the industrial sector, in SMEs as in public services. It is also those who are immediately exposed to the virus who call: health and social service workers.

For some, it is the concern that pushes them to call: prevention and safety measures are not respected in the company, they and they will work "the ball in the belly" at the idea of being contaminated· es or contaminate those around them. For others, in the absence of a union presence at the workplace, the boss keeps the employees in the dark: on the situation of the company, the partial activity, the derogations from the Labor Code in paid leave matters... Sometimes it is even staff representatives who call for information before meeting with the managers.

The first assessment of this hotline is positive: it will have helped hundreds of employees to self-organize to defend their rights and take charge of their situation. In negative, it recalls an obvious fact: where there is not already a union section formed by a few combative employees, it is disarray at the first blow. We then pay dearly for the work of self-organization that we did not "before".
