(en) Spain, alas barricadas: Commemorative days: 100 years of the Canadian capital electricity factory strike (ca) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 12 Feb 2019 11:14:20 +0200

From the CNT of Barcelona we invite you to participate in the commemoration days of the 100 years of the Canadian Strike - known at the time as La Canadiense (Canadian capital electricity factory) - a forbidden and solidary strike, which was a of the most important in the history of the modern working class. A historical fact that demonstrated the transformative capacity of a conscious and organized working class. ---- The commemorative days are from February 9 to March 23 . In each act we want to highlight the events that occurred that week and we have divided them into the following: ---- 9 February: 1. The start of the strike. ---- February 16: 2. Solidarity. ---- February 23: 3. The insubordination. ---- March 2: 4. Feminist Solidarity. ---- March 9: 5. The strike continues. ---- March 16: 6. The triumph of trade unionism. ---- March 23: 7. The fight continues.

The Strike began on February 5, 1919, in solidarity with 8 workers dismissed for not accepting a pay cut when they went from temporary to permanent, and ended on March 17 with the recognition of much of the demands of the strikers:

Readmission of the dismissed and not retaliation.
Increase in salaries between 50 and 100% of salary.
8-hour working day.
Freedom of the imprisoned.
Thus, March 17, 1919 the company and the government yielded to almost all the demands of the strikers, but some workers would still be imprisoned, and the 8-hour workday was included in a decree but not by law.

For another strike was held to free the prisoners - more than 3,000 - which ended on April 3 with the release of the majority of inmates and the approval by law of the 8-hour workday for all workers . It was a great victory for the working class.

Do not miss these interesting days!

The first act next Saturday, February 9 at 5pm , at the 3 Chimeneas park in the Pueblo-seco neighborhood of Barcelona, will be an opening day where we will explain the chronological events of a historic strike promoted by the CNT and we will also have the parliaments of the most combative trade union sections of CNT Barcelona , in which they will talk about their experience in the fight against strikes and conflicts with companies.

We recall that CNT does not participate in trade union elections or works councils and is committed to the union sections within the companies, the workers' assembly and the trade union promoted by CCOO and UGT .

Health and Anarchy!
