PLATE 2 organized by Inter defeated the scabs and Usiminas this process that involved all the steelworkers. ---- A historic moment for Steel Valley region, as they were decades of partnership with employers where metalworkers' rights were reduced, while wages were arrochados pelegos benefited from collusion with employers. ---- The victory is dedicated to metallurgical murdered in the 60s when they fought in Usiminas for better working conditions. Victory comes with the commitment of the Union to regain the united steelworkers and the whole class worked no right to fight for less and move towards new achievements. ---- During the election process we had the participation of a fellow union front FAG, an organization that integrates the Coordination Brazilian Anarchist. The following is a brief report and review of our membership on this important victory:

It is with great pride that we had the opportunity to participate and contribute our grain of sand to the victory of the opposition metallurgy. This is a victory dating back to a symbolic date and will never be forgotten: 50 years ago, precisely in October 1963, the military agreement with the employer and the state government promoted a massacre that left 30 dead and thousands injured. The workers were harshly repressed after rebelling against the magazines promoted off-hours, work overload, poor conditions of hygiene and safety, wages not compatible with the high cost of living, etc..

The massacre was Ipatinga a thermometer for the blow that would come months later. In 1964 was founded the union that became operational within the Usiminas under the control of the employer. During the dictatorship, older pedestrians report that the house had "SNI" where the company operated in the factory and outside caguetagem a service that resulted in layoffs and punishments for those who dared to resist or go against the boss.

However, over time the workers were identifying the snitches, and outside the control of those in 1985 could assemble a slate of opposition named Tool who went on to win the first round. However, with all the trappings of the company who won the bid and was designed from then was the pelego Luiz Carlos Miranda was that during six terms in front of the union. In 88 and 91 there was also opposition, however, the same force without the prior dispute as between the main leaders of the movement to fight some exchanged by parliament.

From 85 the union is controlled by Miranda, this continuity is interrupted only between 95 and 2001, when the plate Altair headed by Villar with the support of the Treasury was in the management of the entity. However, despite the apparent alternation of power in controlling SINDIPA in practice the direction of the union did not represent a significant difference for workers.
Villar In management, was a period in which Usiminas forced the workers to the union based desfiliarem threats. There blockade of the accounts of the entity and employer-based cooptação.Tudo threw it came to meet a political figure in the custom union's former president Altair Vilar that during the term parallel cryo health plan card All. Teminado the mandate, one enriched Vilar, reaching a net worth of 5 million dollars.

When he returned to the union, Luiz Carlos Miranda continued with union corruption scheme in collaboration with employers to remove workers' rights. According to various reports made by metalworkers, several clauses deemed harmful by category were renewed year after year without a vote, as in the case of bank hours. The issues were not addressed in meetings, but appeared in the final document. In the election campaign for deputy in 2010, Miranda competed with donations PDT by Usiminas and other metallurgical enterprises.

In recent dispute of the union elections SINDIPA, Miranda and several directors were barred from competing after the action of the Ministry of Labor for administrative misconduct, damage to property association, misuse of funds and embezzlement, among other irregularities.

Looking at this history and evaluating the recent victory of the opposition, is sure that change is possible. And the motto of the plate 2, after decades of workers amargarem peleguismo, just saying "GO NOW". And our fellow Inter - Instrument of Struggle and Organisation of Working Class that will compose the majority direction, are to be congratulated for articulating this opposition without sectarianism. It took months of work gathering valiant companions with a history of struggle and resistance. Many inexperienced union, with some tradition of struggle, but all warlike and brave for this confrontation against the bosses and scabs. Was instrumental in this victory also class solidarity where dozens of comrades from various parts of Brazil organized their lives to be voluntarily Ipatinga during the month of January.

We came out of this process and strengthened the lesson is that with struggle, organization, courage and determination, you can defeat the truculence of employer and union workers scabs. Besides winning union elections, we will continue in our task of rebuilding the trade union movement from the base, strengthening the organization of workers at the workplace. As anarchists, we strengthen the Inter because it purports to be an instrument of the workers and this is in line with the strategy of creating a strong people. We recognize that space that the practice of political rupture with the dominant system and the aspiration for the transformation of this society. And the action is these social subjects which is the embryo of the new world we want to build.

In memory of the 50th anniversary of the massacre of Ipatinga! Do not forget! Never forgive!

For a classist and combative trade unionism, solidarity and independence with class!

Viva Inter! Long live the Popular Resistance!

Do not fight who's dead and who peleia!
