(en) France, Alternative Libertaire Tract AL - Against the "work" law: everything goes through the struggle (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]
Thu, 17 Mar 2016 18:46:21 +0200
Valls and Macron El Khomri are well aware that the bill attacking the labor code very
wrong happening with youth and wage earners. But even if the government begins to show
signs of weakness, he'll have a big movement to bend and secure the withdrawal of the
bill. After the time of the petition, now is the time to mobilize and strike. ---- On
March 9, the Minister of Labour, Myriam El Khomri was to present a draft law written to
give more freedom to employers and less security for wage earners. ---- With this tailored
law, payments received by wage earners unfairly dismissed es will be capped, companies can
lay off even if they make profit (they will just prove that their results are down) and
the cherry on the cake, Sunday work may be imposed by the referendum when unions have refused.

Furthermore, employers have the option to extend the maximum working hours per day and per
week and propose agreements that allow them to reduce wages or increase the working time.
The mobilization grows
Faced with the mobilization raised by this text antisocial, the government shifted the
presentation of the bill to 24 March. This little maneuver politician had three goals:
salarié.es asleep anger, and of lycéen.nes Students';
to believe that he was willing to listen and change his plan;
negotiate with the unions more docile (I must say "responsible") to try to divide.
But even if the government is willing to throw some crumbs to the CFDT, it is under no
illusions about the outcome of these negotiations.
Given the statements of Valls, El Khomri or Macron, the bill to be presented on 24 will be
roughly the same, with the same gifts to the bosses and the same crap for wage earners.
The proof is that the Medef, the club bosses, actively defending the bill.
That's why we were 500,000 take to the streets on March 9 and that's why we will continue
to move us.
Fear has changed sides
On 17 March, it is the facs and colleges that call to mobilize. And from 17 to 31, there
will be different mobilization dates based on the professional sectors. But the next date
on which you have to put the package, it is March 31, interprofessional strike day.
What scares the government, it's a big movement like in 2006 against the CPE , with youth
(high school and facs) and wage earners in the street. That is why he is trying to put out
the flames and that is why he relies on the state of emergency to help us expressing
The condemnation of Goodyear trade unionists to nine months in prison shows that the
government hopes to silence dissent.
To strike to win
To successfully achieve the withdrawal of the El Khomri bill, we must speak the only
language the government understands: that of the balance of power.
The only solution is to show that we are able to block the economy by the strike. We must
fight against this policy to serve patrons. For the sharing of wealth and the decline of
working time, everything goes through the fight!
