(en) France, Occupation against dismissal at Philips, Dreux (fr) [machine translation]

Date Fri, 08 Jan 2010 17:54:14 +0200

Tuesday, January 5 at 9 am nearly 150-employee of Philips EGP es de Dreux take control of
their business, and hold a general meeting decide to restart production under worker
control. The plant produces television and the goods are stored. The workers have attacked
the hierarchical divisions within the company and were abolished. ---- Anarchist
Alternative libertarian enthusiastically welcomes this initiative and provides exemplary
employees of Philips's total support for self-management experience that they are
conducting. The "Philips" Dreux show a work place can run without the boss. They show the
autonomous capacity of the working class to find its own solutions to the crisis of
capitalism. No, the job losses are not inevitable. Yes it is possible to occupy,
requisition and self-manage companies that lay off!

The group Philips announced a record profit in the third quarter of 2009 from 176 million
euros. This richness, Philips has accumulated on the backs of working men and women it
dismisses today. It is right and proper that they resume their due.

In 1973, the POA hung a banner on the wall of their factory. It was proudly proclaimed:
"we make, we sell, we pay." 37 years later, the "Philips" in step with them. Alternative
libertarian appeals to all and every employee-es to fight against the dismissal by
following their examples.

Veto of workers on layoffs!

Requisition and self-management firms that lay off!
