(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL Narseille - SNCF: More than 45 days of strike and an intact determination! (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 27 Jan 2020 09:24:54 +0200

A month and a half after the start of the renewable strike against the points retirement plan, the railway workers and railway workers are not disarming. Even if the strike started on December 5 has been largely eroded at the SNCF, nothing predicts an end to a rapid conflict ... and the SNCF strikers intend to take part in the mobilization to the end! ---- A strike without any truce ---- For almost a month, the government and the union leaderships of the CFDT and the UNSA have announced the imminent end of the mobilization, but the mobilization has continued, thwarting all demining and division attempts (sectoral measures, report pivotal age...) ---- This strike, which started with a very large number of strikers, lost its vitality over the weeks but became again the majority during the day of interprofessional mobilization on January 9, on the 36th day of strike, this is proof his inking and the determination of the strikers.

It is also the (re) discovery that when the mobilization is in the majority it is possible to really block production despite the obstacles to the right to strike.[1]

A real inter-professional mobilization ... but not widespread

The general strike of January 9 was eagerly awaited by the railway workers on strike, and if this date was not the starting point for a general conflagration, all the general assemblies of strikers noted a real investment many professional sectors and visibility of the strike and blockages in many professional sectors.

If the length of the conflict, and the corresponding deductions of wages, make it difficult to envisage a massive remobilization of the strike renewable at the SNCF, the tone of the last general assemblies looked nothing like an end of mobilization.

The almost daily interprofessional actions, opinion polls favorable to the strikers, the voluntarism of many union teams who remain on strike and continue the mobilization work suggest a strong mobilization on the occasion of January 24, at opportunity of the Council of Ministers which will examine the bill.

This unprecedented movement has already made it possible, through its visibility and its duration, to occupy the political field and to corner the government. Despite the lack of union establishments and the fighting spirit of many union structures, the many links woven locally at the inter-professional level could make it possible to boost union action in many territories.

The inter-professional mobilization started on December 5 is therefore not over, and whatever forms it takes in the weeks to come, railway workers will continue to take their place!

[1]This had not happened to SNCF since the strike of 2007 (meanwhile the law on "continuity of public service" required many categories of staff to declare their intention to strike 48 hours in advance what which allows the company to reassign non-strikers to run as many trains as possible).
