(en) Slovenia & Croatia Network of anarchists (MASA): The service sector may be fighting sector [machine translation]

Date Sat, 3 Jun 2017 11:31:45 +0300

The tourist season, thousands of people left on the Adriatic coast in search of work in hotels, restaurants, taverns, inns, horticulture (landscaping), pizzerias, pastry shops, stores, bakeries, beaches and so on. It is no secret that the service sector is one of the fastest growing in Croatia, and thus clearly goes to the highest stress and margins with employers, managers and customers just on the shoulders of a cleaner, a cook, maid, waiter, bartender, courier, picajola, a seller and Fig. workers. Conditions are particularly difficult primarily because of the heat, but also the speed and performance of repetitive work. In such conditions it is necessary to know the whole story does not have to be obedient, fearful and humble workers, but we can recognize in each other collaborators and look for weaknesses in people who exploit us while sweaty fuck around for every single dollar.

Some of the points that you highlighted are:

Do not hesitate to inquire about the salaries of your predecessors and colleagues from other related companies. The point is not to agree to lower pay than others, but to seek the same treatment or a higher salary. Why to work for change, if the boss really NAMLI steam through the season.

As workers communicate with each other in the workplace with employees from your immediate surroundings, these people may be your co-workers more than bosses and customers. Saleswoman from trade with the waiter from the restaurant "opposite", picajolo by courier etc. So you can find out the habits of your customers and staff watching over you (managers, colleagues, "Druker," the director), but also make new friends.

Do not suffer dangerous and unfavorable conditions, your health and life are much more important than the business enterprise and profits boss. If your hot breath of fresh air, take the brief from the stuffy room. If you are tired, stop, take a break. If the equipment with which you handle invalid are not to be at risk, ask for another. To do better practice you have to understand how you get only a fraction of the profit that the boss collects and how your health is listed beneath its earnings.

Do not think that you are helpless, no company does not like bad publicity and problems in the workplace. If you have experienced humiliation, injustice or dangerous working conditions - do not be silent. None of the bosses would not want him in high season someone destroys the "good reputation and name" anonymous articles on the Internet, graffiti on the facade, a bunch of flyers that warn employees and customers what the employer does. Be imaginative, patient and smart, because there are numerous ways to master, reduce profits for the benefit of workers.

Get to know your rights (Labor Law), but keep in mind that most employers do not respect you if you do not find the pressure (usually working collectives).

We wish you a pleasant summer and the season, at the same time wishing combative and resolute men and women workers - who will not be humiliated and understand that we have to carve for ourselves, because no one comes to rescue.
