(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #225 - Haribo: Revolt, it costs sweet! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 27 Mar 2013 12:03:26 +0200

The Thursday, January 10, 2013 in the morning, 250 people gathered outside the gates of the Haribo factory in Uzès (Gard). A spirit of solidarity launched by the CGT section Haribo after the layoff, 6 December 2012, Jean-Christophe Jolbert. ---- In all, there are six serious offenses which are alleged to Jean-Christophe Jolbert, Haribo employee, 43 years old, recently elected CGT committee of hygiene, safety and working conditions (CHS-CT). " « The situation of this man is unacceptable, scandalous "will prevail, to the factory, a member of the delegation of the CGT Marseille Haribo. The scandal is that these six offenses (theft of sweets, production slowdowns, etc.). Denounced by employee-es of the company to the management " go back there for nearly eight months and are totally unfounded »

The direction of Haribo in addressing Jolbert, above all target elected CHS-CT, a body which has, in itself, an important power that employers are aware: to stop a workshop an office or a factory! And no shortage of reasons: pollution, sanitation, lack of security, rates, working conditions, harassment ...

Management pressure

Haribo CGT had also wanted to extend support to other unions and departmental policies. Delegations of the CNT, the NPA and South were invited to speak at the rally. Speech that made the local union CGT Uzès and departmental union CGT will do anything to prevent it. Old habits Stalinist trade union monopoly in vogue (unfortunately) in the "Midi red" have the tenacious life.

The campaign for the reinstatement of Jean-Christophe looks difficult, however. Management uses all means to prevent a real solidarity of employee-es of Haribo, outside the CGT union members. Many are pressured to the point that among the 250 people on 10 January, a minority of workers and workers were present when the challenge was to close the factory that day. This does not detract from the determination of the CGT Haribo and accuracy of his struggle. In a county where unemployment is over 13%, which plans layoffs multiply (Shellbox, Jallate, Salins du Midi, Vachaud), the case of trade union repression, which reflects another century, deserves any case all our Support. The struggle continues ...
