(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - unionism, Four political reasons to support Scop-Ti by Secretariat for External Relations (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Libertarian Alternative responds to the call of Scop-Ti workers. And why not the entire libertarian movement and the network of militant, alternative and self-managed places ? ---- Why, as libertarians and revolutionaries, support Scop-Ti ? ---- 1. To support a combative and self-managing workers' collective. ---- The story is known: from 2010 to 2013, the workers and workers of the Fralib tea factory in Géménos (Bouches-du-Rhône), fought against the multinational Unilever who wanted to relocate to Poland. A long fight against the dismissals and the closure of the site. In 2013, at the Montreuil Self-Management Fair, a delegation from Fralib came to explain its project of recovery. With lucidity, she had expressed her hopes for the transformation of labor and production that would allow, despite the limitations imposed by the capitalist market.

2. So that their failure is the joy of Unilever.

Until the end, the multinational will have done everything to break a collective that only wants to live from its work. In 2013, after the blockage of three layoffs, Unilever finally throws in the towel, but retained the Elephant brand, whose reputation would have facilitated the activity of the cooperative created by his former employee. es. They created two new brands: Scop-Ti and 1336 (for their 1336 fight days).

3. To strengthen the solidarity between social movement and self-managing cooperatives.
The vast majority of cooperatives, despite their status, are companies " like the others ". A few dozen - including Scop-Ti - strive, on the contrary, to make workers' democracy live, to deconstruct hierarchies, to respect the environment. They should not depend, for their outlets, but traditional trade channels, but link their interests to the social movements with which they are in phase.

4. To encourage ethical production.

Since it was taken over by its employees, breaking with the low-cost drift imposed by Unilever, manufacturing has been reoriented towards quality and organic farming, by reorganizing a short chain with local producers and producers.

In July 2017, the former Fralib factory, renamed Scop-Ti, launched a call for help to " pass a difficult course ". It suffers from a lack of investment in traditional commercial channels and, in the meantime, has launched a " social finance " campaign . But it also hopes to be able to count on the entire social movement: associations, unions, works councils, militant places ... This network is far from negligible.

Already 1336 and Scop-Ti teas are available in the federal premises of Alternative Libertaire, 92, rue d'Aubervilliers, Paris 19 e .
