(en) cgt.org.es: New meeting of the Rojinegra Coordinator during this weekend in Rome (ca, it)[machine translation]
Thu, 21 Nov 2019 09:10:58 +0200
The General Confederation of Labor (CGT) has participated in the new meeting of the
Rojinegra Coordinator held from November 16 to 17 in Rome. ---- During this year, the
Rojinegra Coordinator has met twice. At the meeting held at the headquarters of CGT
(Madrid) in February, the Italian Trade Union Union (USI) offered to organize this meeting
in Rome in which the delegations of all the unions that make up the Coordinator
participated: SAC (Sweden) , USI (Italy), IP (Poland), E?? (Greece), CNT (France), SO and
CGT (Spanish State). In addition, the ILC attended as an observer and the FOB (Brazil)
sent a greeting expressing its desire to share information, knowledge, experiences and do
actions together with the Coordinator.
On Saturday, November 16 and within the framework of this meeting, an International
Meeting on Trade Union Rights and the right to strike in Europe opened to other local
unions was held. There it was found that the attack by employers and their governments on
trade union rights is common in different states.
Some companies try to include referendums in the templates to delegitimize the strike
call, and the reality is that the number of strike days is decreasing and phenomena
appearing from CNT-F as "balloon strikes" of a day in which the The employer makes as if
he listens to the demands of the workers but the next day the same working conditions
continue and the workers who have made the strike are repressed. In Sweden, SAC pointed
out that the working class maintains a welfare state that holds the working class with
their wages. In addition, a new law has been passed in August to restrict the strike to
unions. In Italy, if you are not signing the Collective Agreement, you cannot call a
strike in the sector or the company. In Poland, 50% of the workforce must approve the
strike call in a referendum. In Greece there is also no capacity to call a general strike.
For our part, we point out that in the Spanish State, the right to strike is regulated by
a Royal Decree of 1977, therefore prior to the Constitution, and in most cases, it must be
interpreted in the absence of development by part of the courts that increasingly restrict
this right through the limitation of the strike, declaring illegal strikes, allowing
schirolage and naming abusive minimum services.
During the second day of Sunday, we were working in a coordinated way to achieve better
living conditions for working people, focusing on:
* Fight against Labor Precariousness.
* Defend wage and social equality between men and women and the end of sexist violence and
* The defense of decent pensions.
* Defend the same rights for all people regardless of where they were born.
* The defense of the planet to avoid that consumption and industry are above the health of
those who inhabit it.
* The defense of public services that satisfy all people the basic needs for a decent life.
We will promote mobilization for all these reasons and work towards a General Strike in
each state. Likewise, it was agreed to act in coordination in those productive sectors
where the different organizations have implantation, with the aim of ending the
exploitation and precarious employment prevailing in all the states where we are present.
We must internationalize all the struggles that are possible to us, demonstrating that
ideas and people are over borders, until we achieve a world self-managed by the Working Class.
Secretary of International Relations of the CGT
