(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #292 - Chauffeurs of Saint-Denis: against "the synthesis of Big Brother and Machiavel" (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 14 Mar 2019 10:59:33 +0200

The management imposed on municipal drivers is nonsense from the point of view of the public service, the costs involved and the environmental consequences. While looking for the PCF municipality ? ---- In front of the municipal technical center of Saint-Denis (93), a banner " for drivers on strike " hangs between the flags FO, FSU, SUD and CFDT - CGT did so far not moved by the situation. January 31, like every day for over a week, the 7 strikers (out of 8 drivers) are there in yellow vest (they hold). Their job is the transportation of children to schools, sports associations, and leisure centers in the city: trips to the sea, museum, green classroom, colo ... They participate in public service missions and cultural and social networks, and are proud of it. But now, following the arrival of a new director six months ago, they say, " from a human relations-based management to a spreadsheet in a spreadsheet. It is the synthesis of Big Brother and Machiavelli " .

Finished, for example, the right to compensation of 15.25 euros per meal on mission (lump sum in the public service). To justify this, the new management relies on a circular of 2006 which considers Paris and the neighboring departments as the same administrative residence. Drivers should return to the center to have lunch at the self and then return to pick up the children at the end of the day during outings throughout this vast area. This would represent useless, expensive and polluting hours of travel ... and shows a deep misunderstanding of the profession on the part of management. Today, between the out and the return, the drivers remain at the disposal of the group: " We keep the children's bags and picnics in the bus, and we must be able to accompany them at any time if it rains or if, unfortunately, one of them breaks a leg. "

Geolocated vehicles ... except that of the director
During continuous day trips, drivers are now forced to a 12-hour break at 1:30 pm, unpaid. Should we therefore give up staying available during the break ? " They want to cut the link that exists between us, the institutes, the associations ... " This forced break also means the loss of the meal plan, " while we are sometimes in expensive places and we do not have tickets, " pleads another striker. During this break, they must get off the coach so park: " It means 200 euros parking for a day, instead of giving 15.25 euros to a driver who can stay on site. "And to be indignant: " They break us as if they wanted to privatize us. "

These changes fell " like a chopper and without consultation " . To realize these savings of candlesticks, everything is encrypted and monitored, the vehicles of the center are for example geolocated in real time. Except ... " Except the director's car , " said one of the strikers.

On February 5, the strikers were in the street against Macron and his world ... except that their employer is a PCF town hall. Somewhat frightened to suffer this micromanagerial drift, the strikers, supported by their colleagues from other trades in the center, are no less determined.
