(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #280 - Unions: Grouping together to move forward, not just to warm up (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Sun, 25 Feb 2018 09:08:09 +0200

In the left wing of syndicalism, several attempts to call and regroup have tried to move the lines. In the absence of a buoyant context, they did not take off, but laid the groundwork. ---- Since 2016, many calls for unity and action have been produced, demonstrating the frustration of activists frustrated by inaction and the difficulty of creating the conditions for action at the necessary level. Alas, none of them has produced the desired effect. ---- Let's move on to the efforts of the Copernic Foundation whose productions, whatever their quality, have no real impact in the union body. In 2016, the " Block All " appeal will be remembered as an ephemeral and impotent network of unions whose clear purpose was to help lead the debate on the need for an interprofessional national strike. renewable.

The call " Block everything " emphasized the importance of mobilizing militant collectives in the widest unity and refusing to build a fractional tool. There are still woven relationships of trust that can be used again.

In 2017, the Front social collective has occupied this field. Locally, it allowed the construction of some militant groupings but failed to demonstrate the validity of his speech that workers would wait for a signal to engage in a resolute action, hitherto hampered by the inertia of the trade union leaderships.

The phenomenon of " head processions " has also sometimes attracted union activists who despair of demonstrations dominated cars, balloons and mojitos. In a few cities, there have been some similarities between the leaders of these processions and certain union structures. At the national level, since the " Hunting HRD " operation, there is a network of debate and action between trade unionists and actors of autonomy. But all this concerns only a very small circle of activists. Finally, we will remember that, especially in 2016, the establishment of interprofessional and inter-union AGs made it possible to build strong local actions and useful solidarities.[...]

Let's say clearly that these local GAs remain our strategic compass, prefiguring the necessary local, self-managed local strike committee for the day of " the general ". We are talking about general assemblies gathering strikers and wanting to strengthen the strike and expand it. For the sake of social and workers' democracy, they must be based on general assemblies held in companies, as close as possible to services.
