(en) France, Alternative Libertair #219 - South PTT: Post and Telecom (fr) [machine translation]××

Date Sat, 13 Oct 2012 10:54:45 +0200

In May, the Federal Congress of South PTT has given rise to a number of tensions. At the end of June, the crisis was still unresolved. ---- The IXth Congress of South PTT was held from May 7 to 11 in Frejus. This conference was attended by more than 400 militants and dozens of guests. The conference was organized between policy report, general resolution, postal activities, telecommunication activities, structuring and functioning of the federation. The novelty of this conference was to introduce a resolution entitled "Our unionism" which was an update on the South unionism in the labor field. ---- Percent Unions ---- Unfortunately, the discussions were mainly focused on the structure-function resolution that pointed high stakes: the independence of the two sectors - postal activities and telecommunication activities - and the establishment of effective coordination of members.

The conclusion is: the cross has been the poor relation of the proceedings of this conference. While some unions have raised the total absence of inter-resolution and therefore investment in Solidarity, the general resolution was, moreover, "shunned" by the departmental unions, since nearly 100 unions, only five interventions were place that link international guidelines and national weakness that was already revealed in the national meetings before the conference.

However, the presence of international guests [1] was mainly African highlight the links that are created international perspective among unions.

Resolutions sector, meanwhile, have not been particularly highlighted real differences, apart from the question of the establishment of a debate on the representative institutions (PIT) law rejected at La Poste by the participants.

For warrants

Structuring and functioning of trade unions have always been clivants points in the union. The Congress of South PTT has not escaped these questions. This led to a clash between the text presented by the federal office and part of unions and members attending the Congress. The independence of sectors and strengthening coordination of members initially planned in the text have been rejected by the delegates. Heated debates, sometimes violent, have led to a crisis in the beginning of the union. Result: a part of the federal office belonging to the telecommunications sector has not accepted these findings and resigned his office.

This crisis is always present. An extraordinary national meeting of all the Federation is scheduled June 27 to establish a timetable for debate in South PTT.

Misunderstanding of the issues, real divide in the organization, the Congress of FrÃjus leaves an impression of a mess when the fight unionism and social transformation needs to be powerful against a government that wants to play the pretense of a new policy.
