(en) Greece, APO, landand&freedom: [Thessaloniki] Independent class May Day - Call of Student Associations [machine translation]

Date Sat, 15 May 2021 09:47:10 +0300

Call of the student associations of Architecture, Geology, Electrical Mechanical, Political Science and Psychology in Independent Class May Day, against the new anti-labor bill promoted by the state and capital. ---- We are republishing the text of the Architecture students' association, as it was uploaded on the page of the Architecture Students Initiative , as well as the poster co-signed by 5 student associations. ---- Everyone at the strike rally on May 6 at 10.30 in Kamara ---- Hatzidaki Bill / May Day: ---- The ND government is proceeding with a new anti-labor bill which is expected to be submitted to Parliament in mid-May. The specific bill Hatzidaki through its provisions, essentially:
/ abolishes the 8 o'clock and restores the 10 o'clock. The schedule will be adjusted flexibly depending on how much work a company has. It is understood that the exceedance of 8 hours, ie the two additional working hours, will not be paid at all, since they will be "offset" with rest days in the next period, something that leads to elasticity of work. At the same time overtime increases to 150 in all sectors.

/ collective labor agreements[BCCs]are abolished. The "arrangement of working time" will be done with individual employment contracts. Thus, each employee will be alone with the employer, making the collective claim even more difficult.

/ proceeds to the abolition of the Sunday holiday. After first opening the trade on Sundays, now the work is expanding to other sectors (IT, data centers, etc.).

/ the right to strike is abolished. The bill obligatorily introduces "electronic voting" for the serious issues of the union and for the declaration of a strike, something that in essence files the employees while at the same time criminalizing the decision for a strike. It also creates a legal strike mechanism as it forces unions to appoint "security personnel" who practically make the strike useless. It finally brings a ban on guarding the strike and occupying the workplace, while if the employer invokes "psychological or physical violence" the strike can be declared illegal by summary proceedings, reinforcing the strike.

At the same time that the development of technology and productivity make "less work - better pay" possible, the state and capital, trying to overcome the crisis and increase profits, are making reactionary cuts in the working regime, intensifying exploitation. The student movement must connect the individual struggles, coordinate and fight with the labor movement as well as the current students we are the future flexible employees. The ongoing struggle of the educational and student movement against the Kerameos law and the overall attack on public education shows the way for struggles that can overturn laws by challenging the government's policy as a whole. This year, May Day, following a proposal by primary unions, is postponed to May 6[and not to May 4 - a holiday - as proposed by the GSEE]against the new labor bill and the government, with an independent concentration of class forces. In this miserable attack of the government, the factions of the government, employers and bureaucratic trade unions in GSEE-ADEDY and in many unions have again chosen to support the government and BSE, which is also required by the anti-labor-anti-union law. That is why the burden for the unfolding of the struggles falls on the class struggling forces. We support the strike rally in Kamara, as the independent, class center of struggle with a political content of rupture and overthrow of the existing situation, by coordinating the unions through assemblies in subversive logic, against logics of assignment and complacency. The mobilizations that took place in dozens of cities of the country, together with the student demonstrations, the health struggles, the labor demonstrations and strikes, are cracks of questioning the pursued policy and the government.
