Each winning work has its own history, which shows that there is no de facto, or landed from the sky, as one of the ten commandments. ---- The working conditions are not fixed conditions, but the result of battles between workers and bosses. In the introduction of the Sunday holiday and ochtaorou, bloody battles had taken place a century ago, to be institutionalized. But that never meant nurturing and attacks continue. ---- Since then, various governments have attempted to overthrow this regime and work to serve the interests of the bosses (eg Lambropoulos and Continent Mitsotakis and depending on the HRBA today, BSE, hoteliers) returning the measure to the abolition of the Sunday holiday. (Moreover, the proposals of the trade associations for the operation of commercial stores five and six Sundays a year, have for years).

Cheques troika may be presented as applying for the salvation of the economy, but in fact pave the way to the time requirements of the local bosses for even harsher exploitation even greater devaluation of labor power and life.

The design is simple: two Sundays this year, next year and 6 parachronou all. So go and the Sunday holiday and obviously double payment by employers.

The target and also have put the formal abolition of the 8 hours, the 5 days of off and working hours and generally to all employees.

Their purpose is most squeezed workers and believe that now is the favorable conditions to impose and maintain in the future.

But the favorable conditions for this type of change, not only the difficult economic environment used as an alibi. Associated with potential labor / union movement, organization and militancy of. It has now been demonstrated that the adhesion of bureaucratic unionism of GSEE / ADEDY / go to pieces (and sometimes the employer) interests gives no perspective to change this gloomy situation.

In contrast, in many workplaces, grow increasingly dynamic considerable resistance to implementation. Primary base unions and unions, labor collectives and movements organize races for reinstatement or payment of accrued redundant, demonstrations and sectoral strikes and thus give the daily battle for the defense of vested and dignity. Such a struggle is that he give to the current strike, against the repeal of the Sunday holiday.

The times do not allow anyone to whistle casually or assign to others to solve their problems. Do not let the union movement and the way in kommatoskyla and practitioners of politics. Stand even more threatening obstacle bosses and the state and to turn their plans for us, the worst nightmares.
