(en) France, Alternative Libertair #219 - Unilever Fralib sabotaging negotiations (fr) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 09 Oct 2012 09:27:00 +0200

After more than six hundred days of struggle and employer pressure, what are the prospects for workers Fralib? One certainty, management is bent on finding the most unfavorable for employees: it is a matter of principle. ---- On May 16, the Tribunal de grande instance de Marseille made its verdict on the occupation by the employees of the plant to Fralib Géménos "expulsion will be imposed if necessary with the assistance of the police to Effective June 1, 2012, the parties were invited there by the dialogue. " This call for dialogue, employees Fralib welcome all the best as they seek since the conflict began. Led by the CGT, they wish to submit to the owner of the means of production - Unilever - an alternative project to dismantle the site. Useless, since September 28, 2010, the date of the first announcement of the closure of the Unilever management has always refused to discuss recovery scenarios by employees.

Provocationdes militias employers

But negotiations resume and Arnaud Montebourg however, the Minister of Productive Recovery invites Unilever to commit not to seek evacuation of the site after June 1 as long as the negotiations last. Far from wanting to negotiate, Unilever plays since the beginning of the map psychological harassment and bullying and multiplied provocations. Direction in tape wallet and practice regular deductions from wages for employees claiming the continuation of the activity, considering strike, even if no activity has resumed on the site since July 2011. Then it is the provocation of prison guards paid by Unilever site to harass employees and union representatives, and the input filter to avoid the presence of external support.

Indeed, lorsqu'Unilever announced May 10 the imminent dismantling of production facilities, more than 60 employees repossess the site, aided by a number of supporters who participate in vigils, the guard towers and food management. But the thugs paid by management - employees of the company Escort - armed with canes battle hurtled down the site and engage in verbal provocations, hoping to provoke confrontation and discredit the occupation.

Delegated to local management!
The proposed alternative is Fralib three points: Unilever accompanies the recovery of the site, Fralib recover the Elephant brand and finally propose to ensure business outsourcing for Unilever for six years, after which the site they are sold. These six Fralib allow to redirect production towards local production and local food systems.

Regarding support for the resumption of course, Unilever refuses. Obviously, he does not intend to participate in an alternative favorable to employees. Unilever makes a point of honor, because it would give the workers. As for the brand to sell Fralib, no question! Unilever withdraws a substantial turnover in France and production has been fully transferred to Poland.

The solution proposed by Unilever, with the complicity of the Minister of Productive Recovery would sell off the production tool for local authorities, which would delegate accompanying Fralib. Unilever participate in the financing of this support by paying assistance to communities and give 5 million in bonuses to employees who resume their share Scop. Unilever is ready to give the money to get rid of Fralib but refuses to support the resumption of production equipment by employees.

He prefers to delegate the management of the case of employment to local authorities who may engage in risky projects employees while they are not prepared, thus increasing the risk of bankruptcy. Unilever's speech has the merit of honesty: we are the bosses, when you decide to break you, thank you crash. François Molinier (AL Paris North East)
