(en) [Athens, Sq. Korai, 8/6, 18:00] Gathering - Intervention against the anti-labor bill - Reprint of a call from the site of A.P.O [machine translation]

A year now, with the outbreak and spread of the covid-19 pandemic, its global management has highlighted in the most obvious way the criminal nature of the state and the capitalist system. Neoliberal management comes to terms with the harshest terms of an economic and social restructuring that crushes the lower classes, impoverishes much of the population, and has as its primary concern the maximization of the profits of the powerful and the preservation of the privileges of the economic and political elites. ---- The Greek state and the management of the pandemic by the far-right neo-liberal government of New Democracy are part of this general framework. There has been no concern for human life and the treatment of thousands of cases, with the health system left to the intensive efforts of workers and the ICUs suffocatingly full. At the same time, no request has been made for the private clinics claimed by the health professionals since the beginning of the pandemic, as this would be in conflict with the private capital, while no substantial measures have been taken to strengthen the health system. At the same time, unemployment is rising and most of the unemployed, although part of the working class are abandoned to their fate, Workplace conditions are constantly deteriorating and deteriorating, especially in large factories, while in public transport, which transports thousands of workers, pandemic protection and containment measures are in place at least a year later. At a time when the largest percentage of employees is on contract suspension and mandatory teleworking. At the same time, the list of "accidents" and deaths is constantly growing. In the last month alone, 2 employer crimes occurred resulting in the death of 5 PPC employees (3 in Evia, 2 in Kozani).

In the last month alone, 2 employer crimes occurred resulting in the death of 5 PPC employees (3 in Evia, 2 in Kozani).

Under this treaty, the government, after the bill for the reduction of demonstrations, the anti-environmental law and the new education law, is preparing to bring to a vote a new bill for labor, insurance and trade union action, which is in fact a continuation and specialization of the labor polynomial plan that had passed during SYRIZA. The specific bill is an attempt to abolish the working hours of 8 hours and attempts to institutionalize the (already) unpaid overtime which it offsets with leave and breaks. At the same time, attempts are being made to target and limit strikes and the radical demands of the labor movement. Movements that have been constant demands of the ruling class for a long time,

More specifically, it is provided that the employer will be able to "by arrangement" employ the staff for an additional two hours a day and then these hours will be offset for the next corresponding period with reduced hours or with breaks or days off. It thus tries to establish individual contracts for the working hours of each employee. At the same time, the annual overtime ceiling is increased to 150 hours per year. To date, the maximum is 48 hours per 6 months for employees in industrial and craft enterprises and 120 hours per year in other sectors. This will also apply to work on Sundays and of course without a pay rise, which was valid until recently. Therefore employees will work longer hours and have lower wages. The flexible working hours in combination with the increase of the overtime limit will reduce the labor costs for the companies at the expense of the employees, ie their income will be reduced. The bill, at the same time that it violates the 8 o'clock, attempts the criminalization of the trade union action and annuls the right to strike. This is done in practice by electronic voting, a 40% increase in security staff, the employer 's right to lock-out and a ban on occupying or blocking the entrance to the workplace. It therefore nullifies fundamental trade union freedoms through the targeting of strikes and labor and trade union mobilizations as well as workers who resist, with recent examples of the vengeful dismissals of the health workers who fight daily.

It is obvious that this law comes to stifle all labor rights and conquests as well as to target the world of struggle and the resistance organized from below, the strikes of the grassroots unions, the class initiatives, the mobilizations of collectives and collective organizations. The only real prospect of living with dignity is our social, political and class organization. With grassroots unions, workers' councils, disorganized, unmediated, horizontal and anti-hierarchical formations, together students, pupils, workers, the unemployed, give the workplace, schools, schools, neighborhoods and streets the battle of the class and social struggle. The solution is always in the way of the struggle, for the social and class counterattack,

Against wage slavery, employer terrorism and state repression

We advocate class solidarity, we defend our labor rights and our conquests, we take our lives into our own hands

Ruthless, unmediated social and class struggles until the social revolution, anarchy and libertarian communism
