(en) Greece, APO, Information from the Solidarity Concentration in Aromalab's Failure (gr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 22 Dec 2017 08:52:40 +0200

Yesterday, 16/12, the announced concentration for the resumption of AWB by Aromalab at the company's premises in Oraiokastro, Thessaloniki. Once again strong forces of the police with MAT and patrols arrived earlier, taking position both inside the premises, opening the entrance to the customers and abroad where the squad was standing. The gathering took place normally, banners were hung both by the solidarity assembly and by the Black & Red group, distributed texts to clients and passers-by and called slogans. One of the employers this time came out of a building looking and smiling ironically, but of course behind the police ... ---- IMMEDIATE RESTORATION OF LV WITH THE REAL CONVENTION ---- Next Convention Wednesday 20/12 at 17:00 at Mundo Nuevo (Philip & Shiattis) ---- The text of the meeting can be read below: ---- ABOUT THE DISPOSAL OF THE AROMALAB COMPANY

On September 18, 2017, the Aromalab employee, housed in Oraiokastro, Thessaloniki, was fired off for reasons of vengeance, abusive and foreign to her work. The worker was employed by the company as a chemist by contract with an office worker and was obliged to perform a series of work that did not correspond to the scheme under which he was recruited, both as a chemist and even as an office worker. When the employer required it, among other things, to carry out the cleanliness of communal or non-premises premises of the company (toilets, kitchens, employers' offices etc. ) the employee defended her right as well as all of her colleagues in failing to do so as they did not correspond to their contracts and after a rational reason was dismissed. She was dismissed not because she was not good at her job, since even when the dismissal was notified, the company made sure she was happy with her job but because she was reluctant, unresponsive and obnoxious as she had objected to the demands of the employer realization of cleanliness.
The next day the employee denounces the invalid and abusive dismissal of the labor inspection, and at the meeting set up on her 20/11, the employer is placed on the matter on an entirely different basis by presenting the dismissal in the light of the lack of performance, teamwork, due diligence of the job very clearly "forgetting" the real causes and words that had been told to the worker at the release of the dismissal. Besides, these were not convenient for the company before the labor inspection. When they even wondered who finished the cleanliness of the premises, the employer replied that she did it (!) And simply advised the employees to keep the premises clean.
Of course, the example of Aromalab is not the only one, but it is added in turn to the countless examples of employers' arbitrariness that make up today's working reality. A reality, which requires working-minded people to be paid with hunger wages or to remain unpaid, to work on exhausting hours, to work on Sundays, to be sacrificed to workers' chambers with incomplete security measures - with the latest example, the death of a 2nd employee in a few months in the municipality of Zografou - to be tires and multipurpose tools in the hands of employers, to live under the threat of unemployment, to fear to defend themselves and to claim their rights or accrual angry because they will be fired and eventually can be fired depending on the appetites of every employer.
Against the galley conditions that have been imposed, there are many encouraging examples of resistance and struggle, such as those of public employees in Patras and Kalamata, who claim their accrued income by condemning the degrading working conditions imposed on them, the former employees of Market in Ioannina claim their accruals while at the same time the relevant strike action is struck by the suppression forces leading to arrests of the workers at Lysimachos Saraf in Thessaloniki, who remain unpaid. For our part, we can only stand solidarity with the workers and fight alongside them for a life of dignity.
