(en) France, UCL - In the territory, together for the working time! (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]
Fri, 16 Apr 2021 08:53:25 +0300
Nantes, Paris, Toulouse, Lorient, Saint-Etienne... In recent weeks, strikes have
clearly accelerated among workers in the regions, and this in the four corners of
the country. In common, the increase in working hours. Now is the time to forge
links, coordinate and strike together, to impose another society. ---- Last fall,
the agents of Saint-Denis (93) opened the ball with a hard conflict. ---- But
since then, anger has been mounting in many communities. Nantes, Paris, Lorient,
Ivry, Toulouse, Pantin, Vitry, Créteil, Saint-Nazaire, Carpentras, Grande-Synthe,
Besançon, Champigny, Allonnes, Athis-Mons, Rouen, Villeneuve-d'Ascq... Tension is
rising among the "first of corvée"and reflects a general fed-up felt in the
public as in the private sector.
A historical retreat
In many cities, the town halls hide behind the legal obligation of the law on the
transformation of the civil service dating from 2019, a law against which few
votes of mayors were raised at the time. But they are not in such a hurry to
apply the law when it comes to respecting the rights of agents, especially the
In reality, the abolition of the 8 days of leave is a godsend to reduce the
workforce. In a time of mass unemployment, this is not what we need!
The increase in working hours would be a historic decline. We refuse to spend our
life at work! There is family, friends, and of course the essential rest in our
difficult jobs. Not to mention that the index point is experiencing a period of
ice age ... so still days less, no, it's the last straw.
The question posed by this movement is: what society do we want to build? A
society where some have jobs and work longer and longer hours for lousy wages,
while others have no jobs and are being singled out? With a minority who gorges
themselves? Or do we want a society where we distribute work and wealth among
all, so that we can live in dignity? The choice, it is clear. Even if the mayors
try to smoke us out, the calculations are simple: more working time per agent
means less hiring, therefore more unemployed!
It is only by establishing a firm balance of power with the town halls that the
lines will start to move! But to be stronger, we must also strike together: we
need a coordination of the struggles of the territorial at the national level.
Otherwise, everyone negotiates in their own corner, we are isolated and we risk
being taken in.
Victory is possible. In certain towns such as Châtellerault for example, where
the fight is particularly exemplary, the first victories have been obtained.
Let's exchange, converge, to give ourselves the strength to go further!
We must now continue to talk about it in services, in workshops, in garages. We
must discuss, debate, decide together. General Assemblies must proliferate
everywhere, supported by the unions, so that colleagues can take their struggle
in hand. We are the ones who work, we are the ones who decide. Not a minute of
free work more, it is in the fight that we will seek this victory!
