(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - New UNEDIC Convention No degression allowances (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Wed, 9 Mar 2016 13:38:30 +0200

Here is the statement from the commission insecurity and direct solidarity AL on reform projects Unédic Convention. ---- The government of "left" and "socialist" directed by Manuel Valls, Hollande has launched an accelerated offensive against the rights of the working class as a whole. So, having established a draconian state of emergency, and muzzled the challenge to the COP-21 by measures of exceptions, the government went into high gear: on one side the outrageous bill attacking Labour code will further increase the exploitation and insecurity (especially pushing towards the unemployed wage earners who refuse to work more to please their boss), on the other, the new convention UNEDIC gripe further rights of the unemployed."

The new convention UNEDIC would indeed simply reintroduce degression of unemployment benefits, that is to say, roughly, lowering quickly. Without any care for the unemployed and compensated es unemployed, this measure will obviously have as effect to worsen the living conditions of asylum seekers and job-es compensated without help them find a job . Everything went through precarious job center knows that these supposed benefits are meant in no way to find a job, only to impose most of the time ineffective controls, but mostly painful and Kafkaesque.

These are also the intermittent-es-es already passed through the mill in 2014 are once again in the sights of the government, Medef and some collaborators unions.

Fallacious arguments

To change, the government claims that it is because of the historical deficit of the UNEDIC that this reform is necessary. Again, they are sewn white son of lies that even very moderate "boxes" of the Monde.fr website easily update:

"The latest figures, dating from 2014, show that contributions from affiliated UNEDIC (over 16 million in assets) reached 33.94 billion euros, when the compensation cost that year, 31.26 billion euros. Leaving a balance between premiums collected and benefits paid positive stoppages 2.68 billion. [1] "

This means that far from being in deficit, UNEDIC is instead one of the few cases of compensation which is in surplus. The deficit is due to a 10% puncture made by the State in this budget to finance the "public employment service", including job center, and help with business creation, and which can rightly challenge the character of "public service".

In short, there still is a deficit created from scratch, which is a pretext for stifling reform our rights and benefits the employers ... When in reality, it is the insecurity under the guise of flexibility, that costs us the most expensive. Thanks WHO ? Thank you "socialists" ...

A comprehensive response

This measure is somehow the twin sister of the law of breakage of the Labour Code. In addition to attacking the workers at their place of work, it also attacks on their places of compensation. In response, We need our opposition to these measures join, to deny that business and their political staff quietly organize asphyxiation of our lives.

This includes mobilizing unemployed workers and more generally all precarious. This of course goes through all the precarious organizations and applicants / job-seekers who claim the battle, not the only accompaniment. But this also involves a convergence with the workers of the public employment services, including job center or CAF whose conditions also continue to deteriorate. This requires in addition a necessary convergence with intermittent es among the precarious that mobilize the most.

That said, we must not forget that this can be done only if we mobilize all compensated es precarious by Pôle Emploi and whose living conditions will directly be impacted.

Finally, this struggle, if it exists, should not and must not only defend the status but rather status and well raise the question of insecurity in general, its place in the wage system, and also the legitimacy of capitalism as a system economic…
