(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #226 - Companies: The class struggle is also in SMEs! (fr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 19 Apr 2013 11:16:07 +0300

While the struggles that lay large boxes are rightly under the spotlight in the small and medium enterprises (SMEs) as the attacks increase. Response is difficult to build. ---- France has 2.55 million SMEs, which account for 97.4% of companies and 48% of employee-es. Flower Pellerin, socialist minister, believes that " the class struggle n [y] is not . " The reality is quite different interests between employers and employee-es are antagonistic, first put their work force available and do not collect the fruit, do not decide to work organization, rhythm, investments, etc.. ---- Specific ---- The myth of the nice SMEs against the evil multinational alibi for those who want to reduce the violence of the economic system limited to a few excess CAC 40 companies. Of course, a small, often subcontractor or subsidiary of a large group, is directly the choice of ordering.

Therefore, how to mobilize when the company loses a contract and it appears inevitable fire risk, if not close? Yet SMEs play a specific role in the organization and the capitalist division of labor. They undermine their own employee-es, while serving in blackmail against those of large companies. The lack of implementation of association, trade union rights in companies with fewer than 11 employees are-the massive use of CSD and interim can break a collective work. The legal structure of the economy in many SMEs, using variable adjustment but themselves stakeholders of this system gives the illusion of isolated cases. Thus, the employee-'re not positioned in relation to their "business", which easily leads to "understand the difficulty of the boss."

The construction and automotive

Take the fight at PSA. If the employee-es of the Aulnay plant have been on strike for weeks, the situation is radically different from the subcontractors. Considered as employee-es-es second class, those who are working are struggling to participate in the fight then they will be the first affected. Trade unions play a role here, through their choice of structuring their campaigns that cater to certain employee-es and not others, the lack of analysis on these companies. The building is another area affected by job cuts and poor working conditions. Combine several issues: the outsourcing subcontracting, large groups of hundreds of branches, fiscal restraint preventing many projects, a lack of policy vision of the city ... In response, trade unionism is almost absent and the employee-es have little room for maneuver: how to recreate the link between the different sites? How to build a comprehensive response? Just look at the last campaign of the National Federation of the building, calling for ever more social dumping, and giving the employee-es of individual responses, such as self-entrepreneurship.

However, struggles also exist in SMEs. This led to the cinema Carmelites Orleans demonstrated, but this happens from time to time in the industry, even if the media does not talk. Revolutionary syndicalism has a key role to play, provided to implement some measures identified long: unions that bring employee-es beyond the divisions decided by the employers, a battle for re-insourcing activities and therefore, employees are in firms donating order, tours and permanence in the direction of the latter, the development of local unions inter ...
