(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL - Cleanup sector strikes, NH Collection Marseille, Ibis Batignolles ... " My back hurts ! You have to pay ! " (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 2 Aug 2019 08:17:08 +0300

For several years, strikes have proliferated in the cleaning sector, where exploitation is combined with sexist and racist oppressions, particularly in the hotel industry. Two strikes today testify: those of the maids of the NH Collection in Marseille and the Ibis hotel of Batignolles. the Libertarian Communist Union (UCL) gives its full support to the strikers and their unions. ---- These struggles are carried out with great determination by strikers who are subjected to very harsh working conditions. At the NH Collection in Marseille since April 11, at Ibis Batignolles since July 17. ---- To the shameless exploitation of cleaning contractors is added the daily disregard of the contractors and the violence of the little chefs. ---- To the precariousness, to the wages of misery, to the hours of work stolen by the bosses, are added the discriminations and the oppressions, racist and sexist, that undergo the maids.

The ongoing strike at the Ibis Batignolles revealed that a maid had been raped by the hotel's former director in 2017. In all these strikes, the evidence is systematically brought that the outsourcing regime is associated with harassment and terror. It's a whole system that has to be brought down and that's what the repeated strikes in this sector require.

Because these women raise their heads and respond with anger and strike. When they stop cleaning, the hotel loses its " prestige " !

Their courage, their will, their tenacity force respect. We must also salute the important work of organizing their unions, here the CGT HPE and the CNT-SO. We can, we must fight and never resign ourselves !

The Libertarian Communist Union (UCL), its activists, give their full support to the strikers and their unions and call to popularize their struggles and to support their strike funds.
