(en) Greece, liberta salonica: Anarchist Federation: Organize our counter-attack against the state and the bosses | November 1: Cross-country strike from below [machine translation]

Date Mon, 5 Nov 2018 08:54:39 +0200

Organize our counter-attack against the state and the bosses, building on our collective strength and self-organization. ---- For the inter-branch organized "bottom-up" strike of base clubs on 1/11 ---- We do not have the same interests as our bosses. Instead, it separates an abyss. As the wild and the hunter o fights for life and the other against her. ---- In capitalism there is a great virtue: the profit. The harder our exploitation gets, the more the bosses earn. The less we get paid the more they get rich. The more we work, the more good we produce for them. And as our collective power decreases, the more we enforce ourselves upon us. They want us slaves. Isolated, alienated and submissive.
And on the other side we are. Those who work. Those who sell our work to live. The consciousness of our position, our organization and our demands can be brought up and down in society. For many years our expression has been monopolized by what we call bureaucratic syndicalism. A syndicalism subjugated and sold out to the interests of our bosses. People who built a political career and name on our backs rumbled our struggles, blown them and deflated them, depending on the appetites of the parties they supported and supported. It is worth noting that last spring, the unpaid trade union leadership of GSEE and ADEDY proceeded with the establishment of the "Social Alliance", a partnership with a series of employers' professional associations, even calling for a caricature of strike in the form of a call for workers to participate in a "national day of action". This initiative was yet another act of orderly peace on the part of bureaucratic unionism and discipline in the demands of the bosses.

It is clear that this story must be over. We need to meet ourselves and organize our struggle. Put our needs, goals and strategy autonomously and independently of our employees, our parties and our bosses. So to build structures of uninterrupted class organization.

And the good thing is that the beginning has already been done. All over the country, examples of base clubs, that is, organized by the workers themselves and with a horizontal structure, are now many. At the same time many are now autonomous assemblies of workers and unemployed of different branches.

On November 1, an eight-base initiative called for a cross-cutting and "bottom-up" strike, while a number of other unions and workers' assemblies supported and participated in the strike. With demands that respond to our real problems and needs, we are called upon to give a first small but hopeful battle.

To make the uninterrupted class organization a case of the majority of workers

Fight for our real needs

Until we break the chains of wage slavery

The demands of the strike:

* Increases in salaries according to our needs.

* Abolish wage discrimination against young people at the age of employees (minimum wage below 25 years).

* Abolish the legislation allowing the definition of the minimum wage with state intervention.

* Resumption of collective bargaining and the validity of the Collective Labor Agreements (GCC).

* Reset wage-wages-hourly wages to the levels foreseen by the CPC (National General, Sectoral, Operational) prior to Memoranda of Understanding, so that these levels could form the basis for negotiations on wage increases.

* Abolition of the memorandum laws that undermined the freedom of association of the organizations in the Mediation and Arbitration Organization (OMED).

* Extensibility of collective agreements. No worker without a contract.

* Reduce working time.
