(en) Libertarian Initiative of Thessaloniki: Open assembly against the upcoming anti-labor bill [machine translation]

Date Sat, 15 May 2021 09:59:23 +0300

On Monday, May 10, at 5.30 pm in STHE we call for the creation of an open assembly for the organization of counter-information excursions and actions against the forthcoming unemployment bill. ---- A bill, which after 10 years of capitalist crisis, the greatest burdens of which were lifted on the backs of the working class and the lower social strata with reductions in wages and pensions, increases in retirement limits, increase in the cost of living, introduction of flexible working relationships, privatizations and mass unemployment comes to: ---- Essentially abolish the 8 o'clock leaving the door open for 10 hours of work, to more than double and formalize the unpaid overtime and the Sunday work for more sectors. An essential point and core of thought of the bill, is the consolidation of the individual negotiation for the schedule between employer and employee. There are no classes except individuals and so no collective bargaining / contract will come in front of the individual agreements of bosses and workers who "as equals" will discuss and decide whether and how much the latter will work for needs and profits. of the first.

-To give the final blow to the trade union freedoms, with ND taking the baton from SYRIZA by perfecting the digital file of the unions and the establishment of electronic voting, something that in combination with the order of the previous government is required to double the number of employees. , essentially abolishes it as a means of claiming and fighting the workers. At the same time, it is stipulated that at least 40% of the employees of companies and institutions whose operation is considered critical for society as a whole must work even in the event of a strike.

Employers are also given the opportunity to invoke psychological or physical violence during the strike guarding, which automatically leads to dismissal and criminal prosecution, while the strike will be deemed illegal and the company will be able to claim compensation.

At the same time, through the assembly, the aim is to highlight the lack of protection measures in the workplace that cost the health and lives of many employees. This concerns both the pandemic during which no measures have been taken in factories, shopping malls, schools with workers moving to and from work stacked on buses, but also the wider working conditions intensified with the capitalists they are constantly putting their profits from our lives higher on the scales.

The need to rally the base against this bill is imperative, it comes in as the main tip, but it stands for us as another touch, perhaps the final one, in the frame of the cycle of the current history we are experiencing.

A new cycle of intensification of the capitalist crisis accelerated by the pandemic, a cycle of even more massive unemployment and poverty, a cycle of even more violent restructuring of labor relations, a cycle of intensive privatizations, a cycle where within a year of quarantine bills have passed billions to prepare the country for war and repression; A cycle where immigrants live in a perpetual hell from the borders to the detention centers and are not given the opportunity to work, to be educated,

The struggle against wage labor, the struggle against the state and capitalist organization of society itself, the struggle for a transition to a world without oppression and exploitation, presupposes and dialectically links with the struggle we must give as part of the working class, as part of the oppressed, through the unions but also through political and social formations, against the specific bill.

Against the bureaucratic and contractual logics that led the working class and society to the degeneration of both the unions and the mass struggles of 2010-2012, with the first stop the interventions next week in the context of the nationwide campaign and in order to create a group who will be able to stand in the small and big events of the coming weeks by opening the issue in neighborhoods and workplaces, we invite to an open meeting on Monday 10 May at 17.30 in STH.
