(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL Novembre - SNCF: Trade union sectarianism leads us right into the wall ! (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sat, 25 Nov 2017 07:55:59 +0200

Parochialism and divergent calls for mobilization: it was a big deal, in October, on the side of the railway union federations. There is still time to rediscover the meaning of unitary action. ---- On September 12, railway and railway workers had responded to the first day of mobilization against the Macron Orders, with a strike rate of around 30 %. An encouraging start even if, like the other professional sectors, the mobilization has been declining since September 21st. The action day of October 10 for the defense of public service could have been a new springboard, and there was something to hope for a call in unity ! Missed, completely missed ! Unsa called to parade with the officials but without going on strike ; the CFDT, it, organized a rally on Paris but without joining the demo. SUD-Rail has invented a call to " converge all on Paris While there was no national demonstration, but demonstrations in all regions. And the CGT-Cheminots called for ... nothing. On the other hand, she decided to call the strike alone on October 19th. Result of the races: strike days here and there, with no other impact than to lighten the payroll at the end of the month. Above all, a deplorable image sent back to our colleagues by our unions, as to our ability to build a strong movement that can win.

Let's stop the fees !

Where there is a need for unity to give confidence to employees, our union federations CGT and SUD-Rail oppose sectarianism to sectarianism. But the problem is not to shout as much as possible " general strike ", but to prepare it, to organize it. At the point where we are at present, the important thing is elsewhere: service by service, we must rebuild the conditions for a strong movement, unitary, renewable and in relation with what happens in other professional sectors.

Inter-professional unions are heading towards a strike day in mid-November. This is what must be prepared now, for a massive strike and not limited to a protest of twenty-four hours. It must be a strike to win, so a strike carried by the mass of railwaymen and railway workers through general assemblies where they and they decide their movement.

Everywhere, let's push for unitary union calls in this direction. But above all, let's organize ourselves to create and impose this dynamic !
