(en) Poland, Poznan: Volkswagen crew: They release us, and we're setting up a new trade union National Labor Union Worker Initiative [machine translation]

Date Sun, 13 Aug 2017 12:27:27 +0300

Last week at the Volkswagen Automobile Factory in OZZ, the Employee Initiative established a factory organization. At the same time, three people were released, one disciplined. The reason for the layoffs were the Facebook postings about the need to set up a union in the face of deteriorating working conditions. Officially, the company considered it a violation of the group's personal interests. In fact, the idea was not to create an organization that would actually represent the interests of the crew. Until now the monopoly was owned by NSZZ "Solidarnosc". ---- Ultimately, due to the determination of employees at Volkswagen, a new trade union commission was created, but the three involved in it still remain unemployed. Their release is nothing but repression for trying to organize themselves in the fight for a better quality of life for all factory workers.

Recently, a 17th change was made to the factory on Saturdays, and another 18th change is planned, which will include Sundays (there were three changes on weekdays, 3x5 plus one change on Saturday). Changes were agreed by the Solidarity union, which had been operating in the company, which was met with indignation in part of the crew. This union, which claims to fight Sunday employment (eg trade), is unquestionably resigned to the dictates of the Volkswagen board, accepting the night shift from Saturday to Sunday.

Meanwhile, in the Volkswagen factory in Slovakia 70% of the crew went on strike demanding higher wages. After 6 days of strike the company agreed to a 13.5% hike and a 500 euro one-off payment. The employees of Poznan's factories also do not want to look at themselves idle as the company upswing workers screw, salaries leaving on unsatisfactory level. The Volkswagen crew announces that followers of Slovakia will be fighting for better wages and working conditions and for people who are not afraid to fight for their rights.

Today, under the Volkswagen's foundry at the Wildee, a press conference was held with the redundant employees and disclosed activists of the new commission. There were also leaflets informing about the appointment of a new organization and the situation at the plant. Leaflets also took place in Antoninka. More information is planned, in Swarzedz and in Wrzesnia.

Contents of a leaflet addressed to The Volkswagen employees

life of a serial employee in Volkswagen is not a holiday. The work is heavy and monotonous, executives are forced to overtime, agency contracts are extended for years, wages are too low, To enjoy life, pay for overtime paid with a year's delay ... We all have Solidarity. A relationship that holds a management board. Its activists are not visible in the production halls as they hide in the offices. It is hard to count on their help even in case of everyday problems. Solidarity recently agreed to an additional 18 change. She did it without asking the staff. If Solidarity does not represent the will of employees, what does it do in this establishment?

At the same time, Volkswagen released a trojan from our Antoninka colleagues. The official reason was their Facebook postings. However, we all know that it's about having a relationship that will represent the interests of the employees rather than the boss. In response to the unlawful release of our colleagues and the inactivity of Solidarity on August 6, we established the Volkswagen Intercompany Commission of Employees in the Workers' Initiative.

In the new relationship: - we are independent from management, we do not want jobs or business cars in exchange for good relations with managers,

- fight for better wages and working conditions for all workers (employed directly and through agencies),

- in our organization, each employee has Equal voice, we are fighting for an improvement in the lives of all of us, not the union bureaucracy.

If you are tired of squeezing the last sweats for dog money, corrupt unionists, arrogant bosses and do not want a shifting system, join the Workforce Initiative. IP associates permanent and temporary employees, Belonging to other trade unions as well as non-affiliated ones, working in Antoninka, Wrzesnia, Swarzedz and Odlewnia.

We do not have a chance with the board, but when we're together, our strength is increasing.
