(en) Greece, liberta salonica: NTU intervention in Jumbo branch against Sunday work [VIDEO] [machine translation]

Date Wed, 22 Jan 2020 09:30:01 +0200


Until now it does not provide with the modern Jumbo workstation! ---- What are the working conditions in Jumbo: ---- A few days ago, the well-known toy retailer Jumbo SA, which operates 52 stores in Greece and another 27 in the Balkans and Cyprus, announced with great enthusiasm that its stores in Preveza and Katerini are out of stock. from now on they will open every Sunday of the year. As we can see the opening of stores in this particular chain every Sunday of the year, on a steady basis, according to the official announcement of the administration, it is going to start from the two above mentioned cities, but the company's intention is clearly to extend this agreement to all its stores throughout the territory and therefore established as a general employer policy of the group concerned.
Jumbo SA is one of the largest working galleys in the retail industry. This is further evidenced by the dozens of complaints by labor unions about the abusive working conditions and over-exploitation of the labor force in the chain. Jumbo employees work until the final fall, as the company 's exhaustive working hours are: 09:00 - 21:00 on weekdays and 09:00 - 20:00 on Saturdays. The group's employers' arbitrariness consists of licenses announced at the last minute, removal of parental leave, endless standing, prohibition of employees to drink water in front of customers, prohibition of using cell phones during working hours, prohibition of free time their break, which is often misused by them. In addition, at Jumbo, employees work part-time, while in fact working full-time. Employer nonsense in that group of stores has no end...

During the commercial-consumer season (beginning of the school year, Christmas, Halloween, Easter, summer), when there is a distinct opportunity to overproduce through the intensive exploitation and misery of the workers, the latter are forced to work under threat of dismissal for 40 and not for 30 hours as their contracts provide, when asked by their bosses. So Jumbo workers work 6 out of the 7 days a week, get rid of overworked conditions, get terribly frustrated by their employer, and eventually earn a meager paycheck, completely disproportionately disadvantaged. , so that Jumbo's bosses are constantly enriched. At the same time, the Labor Inspectorate seems to be turning a blind eye to all the complaints that weigh in on this particular retail colossus. Jumbo's employers have not gone so far as to resort to "delivering seminars" to the Labor Inspectorate to their employees, along with the necessary threats of redundancies of course. Through all of these ways that Jumbo's bosses have engineered to increase their capital gains through the intensive exploitation of their overworked staff, we understand how and why the company reported turnover of € 812 million, while net cash profits amounted to 238m euros in 2019.

What the workers and the poor need to do to fight the terrorism of the bosses:

The working conditions prevailing in Jumbo are consistent with the more comprehensive status of the modern working age imposed by capitalists and their political personnel on those who struggle daily to survive exclusively through the sale of their labor force in the wider social sphere. The burden of the capitalist crisis we are undergoing, as well as all the other crises that preceded the present one, has been fully loaded on the backs of the working class and the poor people. In order to stay on the path of profitability and continuous capital accumulation, bosses with the good cooperation of bourgeois governments, which literally serve their interests, have imposed on the labor market precarious, resilient and rotating employment, uninsured work, unpaid overtime, non-payment of gifts, refusal of licenses, work for 32 Sundays in commerce. At the same time, hunger wages are by no means sufficient to meet our basic living and social needs. As if all this weren't enough, the bosses are rushing at every opportunity to terrorize the workers in order to retreat from their collective acquis, threatening them with layoffs, unemployment and constant job wandering, as there are entire unemployed backups waiting for a queue. bread, with humiliating working conditions.

The capital is being restructured in aggressive terms by melting down the shaky social base, depriving it of the collective rights gained through hard and perennial labor struggles. The longer we remain bowed head on, the more we remain divided and closed to ourselves without reconstructing our collective, class resistances against the coordinated attacks of the state and capital, the more we will gradually have more and more back and forth a material impact on our daily lives, as they are subject to poverty and poverty, making our living conditions and working conditions more difficult.

Class solidarity and direct trade union action are the weapons of the workers. Those of us who grieve under the shameful status of wage slavery have common material, class interests. We are in the same class position, at the base of the productive and social pyramid. When we unite and organize in defense of our common class interests, then we will be able to form a powerful punch capable of crushing the barbaric world of state and capital.

We therefore call upon every oppressed and exploited person to thicken the ranks of proletarian self-defense and class counterattack. Organize in their workplaces, gain active trade unionism, solidarity with their colleagues and employees in other disciplines. The GSEE and ADEDY regime and employers' trade unionism are bankrupt and suspenseful for the promotion of labor interests, as it lobbies against slavery and slavery with the interests of bosses. Trade unions and trade unions must defend the interests of workers, fight for their rights against the predatory pursuits of the state and bosses. This is the trade union action that we ourselves prefer. The unacknowledged, democratic,

For our part, we express our full class solidarity with the employees and employees of Jumbo Company. We declare that we will stand by their side in their fight against the backward and arbitrary employers of this group. For this reason, therefore, we call for a massive boycott of the Jumbo chain, as a symbolic form of economic pressure and class solidarity, until the employer withdraws all its arbitrary and abusive arrangements that contribute to the intensive exploitation and misery of workers. We call on the class unions of workers, retirees, the unemployed, students, students, but also the political collectivities and organizations of the anti-capitalist space to support the Jumbo workers,
