(en) France, Alternative Libertaire #226 - Automotive: PSA Aulnay indefinite strike (fr) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 14 Apr 2013 12:10:51 +0300

The fight against the closure of PSA Aulnay has reached a new milestone since January, with hundreds of employees are on strike-renewable. ---- Workers of PSA Aulnay decided to directly confront Peugeot-Citroën is making indefinite strike in [ 1 ]]. It was not until the end of the "negotiation" for social things settle. Hopes to leave with compensation consistent flew. This has facilitated the convergence between CGT (defending rather significant compensation) and South-Auto (which promotes the maintenance of industrial sites and jobs) to which is attached the CFDT site. Recall that the majority union in Aulnay is the Independent Trade Union of Automobile (SIA), historically the remaining bosses. General meetings of 16 January involving several hundred people voted renewed strike continues at the time of writing this article.

Whether to maintain the site or to obtain more substantial benefits, only the relative strengths can live to win.

Expand the fight

Three major issues arise for reducing PSA and the government on the issue of the closure. The first: Confronting Violence employer. From the beginning of the strike, the bosses wielded intimidation and repression, to break a movement that gene: site of Aulnay has yet to deliver tens of thousands of cars before its planned closure. The bosses have used teams of scabs from other factories, managers who make the provocation, vigils, and slander. The management of PSA suggests that the strikers bully non-strikers (supported in this by Laurent Berger, the new boss of the national CFDT) and degrade the plant. Two strikers, the CGT union were dismissed mid-February for "serious misconduct" [ 2 ]]. Second challenge: maintaining unity and widen the struggle. Strikers, supported by trade unions are in a logic of convergence of struggles, going towards other boxes and other sites of the car. We must also continue to inform much of the strike which is currently the main resistance to massive job cuts in France [ 3 ]].

Financial solidarity

Third issue: Messages of support also are important for the strikers, the central point is that financial solidarity. More strikes and advance financial difficulties are felt. If management eventually release more crumbs, the temptation to stop the movement will be. Every euro counts. Several collective AL were already made public collections. Similarly to Saint-Denis, where local unions CGT and Solidarity conducted a common task of collecting and propaganda.

Finally, if the priority is clear that the maintenance of industrial plant and production tools in Seine-Saint-Denis, we can do without thinking long term, particularly in terms of requisition of the business ( self) and industrial restructuring: what and who are the products both in social terms (what do we really need?), in ecological terms?
