(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #256 (Dec) - Rural South Equipment: Congress of the reconquest (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Tue, 19 Jan 2016 11:55:26 +0200

If it is no longer representative, the small South Rural union is dynamic, constructive and does not hesitate to take a position on the ecological question in an anti-capitalist vein. Presentation at the end of its congress. ---- The South Rural Congress was held in Saint-Ours-les-Roches from 2 to 5 November. Rural South unionized agents of the Ministry of Agriculture and part of the Ministry of Environment officials: one finds personal public agricultural education, higher education, decentralized services (slaughterhouses, sanitary controls, veterinary services) and central government... In short, a vast field where unionization because of permanent and destructive reforms of public services, it involved agents lose themselves! ---- Rural South is about 200 members and 5% in professional elections, which earned the union to lose its national representativeness like South education. The conference was therefore placed under the sign of the reconquest! With four texts under ten pages each congress, written in understandable language, rural South has managed to avoid the trap of a sterile congress or we forget the basics: talk about trade unionism. Claims are simple and unitary. The union managed to have a debate on secularism without drama!

Beyond the defense of public service, the Southern Rural particularity is to be located in the area of agriculture and the environment. The text on ecology was placed in terms of social ecology by saying that the solution to the ecological question was to break with capitalism! By connecting in a Congress resolution, labor practices and environmental, South Rural opens a perspective in which the whole labor movement must seize. The environmental issue must be thinking at the heart of trade union struggles. Indeed, we must not let this debate be the domain of experts and "citizens". This is a radical change in production that we can find solutions to the ecological crisis and until proven guilty employees are best placed to address and act!

More horizontality and direct democracy

The conference was also an opportunity to discuss with other components of Solidarity, a labor inspector South Labour gave an update on attacks against labor law especially related to Macron law. The union also affirmed its solidarity with the labor inspector questioned by Justice merely for doing his vis-à-vis the work of the Tefal company.

The end of the conference was dedicated to the functioning of the union where the tracks are numerous improvements including the introduction of more direct democracy and horizontality. The new national union office will have a heavy task of animation in a context of massive reduction in operating resources (reduction of trade shocks and reduced financial means). The reasons for fighting are not lacking, for us to be effective, unitary and combative!
