(en) Germany, FAU benefits from the increased transfer of knowledge within the new International -- The IKA as an educational institution (de) [machine translation]

Date Thu, 16 Aug 2018 06:23:54 +0300

On May 13, 2018, the International Labor Confederation (IKA) was founded in Parma. An important focus of this new international association of syndicalism is the exchange of knowledge, educational concepts and personal encounters among trade union activists from different regions. In the last three months, several activities have already been initiated in this sense. ---- For example, on the weekend of June 15-17, a member of our Spanish sister union CNT from L'Hospitalet de Llobregat was in Germany. In Hanover and Berlin, Jordi spoke about current "Perspectives of Syndicalism in Catalonia". He explained the position of the Catalan CNT, which distances itself from both Spanish and Catalan nationalism. At the same time, it engages in local social struggles and opposes the violence of the Spanish state against civil society. In addition to the public events, there was an exchange of experiences with the local activists of the FAU. Among other things, Jordi visited the Union Coop operation Flying Roasters in Berlin .

On July 7, members of the CNT, the FAU and the IP from Poland met at FAU in Berlin to discuss the training concepts of these three organizations. Participants are responsible for developing these concepts within their organizations. They teach union members how to set up an operations group and how to successfully manage labor disputes. One finding of the day is that, despite some differences in the size and structure of each organization, the same challenges are constantly coming to the fore, such as the continuous activation of union members within companies.

Between 20 and 22 July, a comrade of the International Committee of FAU from Hannover finally took part in the "free university" of the CNT in Traspinedo near Valladolid. This trip gives the FAU even deeper insights into the union work of our Spanish sister trade union. In particular, we can now use CNT tools and techniques to analyze farm structures and social dynamics within farms. This knowledge will be passed on to the active members of the FAU within the next few months.

That's just the beginning. In the near future we will also intensify the exchange of experiences with the other sections of the IKA from Greece, Italy, the USA and Argentina. In the medium to long term, the IKA wants to establish union structures within transnational corporations.
