(en) alternativa libertaria fdca: WE BUILD THE NATIONAL GENERAL STRIKE (ca, de, it, pt)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 29 Jul 2021 10:59:43 +0300

Friday 9 July 2021. The multinational GKN communicates the closure of the factory in Campi Bisenzio (Fi) via email. The closure involves 422 redundancies and, in consideration of the related activities, over 500 families will find themselves without a fundamental source of income. ---- Wednesday 14 July 2021. ---- The multinational Whirlpool communicates by videoconference to the trade unions its intention to start the dismissal of 322 in the Naples plant without resorting to the 13-week layoff made available by the government for avoid layoffs. ---- The agreement on the release of dismissals, "the common notice", signed on June 30 by Confindustria, by the Government with the subordinate endorsement of the Confederal trade unions, has shown all its fragility and inadequacy, so much so that it and completely disregarded by the multinational counterpart. Thus a strong wave of layoffs is expected which, according to the very recent events, does not seem to be postponed to autumn.

These events are the latest in a dramatic series that has seen social conflict grow and assert itself in the emerging logistics sector, which employs over 800,000 employees, where even radical forms of struggle have established themselves, guided in some cases by grassroots trade unionism , have seen immigrants and immigrants in the front row to defend and improve their working conditions.

Methods of struggle that belong to the history of the labor and trade union movement have been rediscovered and practiced, such as all-out mobilizations, pickets and garrisons in front of factories. Forms of struggle that, constantly discouraged by the concerted drift of the confederal bureaucracies, have revived the participation of male and female workers, also tearing up agreements for improvements.

But with the escalation of the conflict, aggression against initiatives of struggle and open repression have multiplied, both by the repressive apparatus of the state determined to transform the conflict into matters of public order, and by the employer counterpart who organized and favored strike-breaking, fueling a growing spiral of violence that led to the killing of comrade Adil Belakhdim, a trade unionist from Si Cobas, who was run over by a truck in front of the LIDL logistics headquarters in Briandate (No).

Faced with the immediate reactions of groups of workers and trade union activists, the CGIL also saw solidarity with the workers' struggles and dismissals by categories and Chambers of Labor expressed; thousands of activists and trade union activists, delegates and delegates are actively supporting the mobilizations up to the general strike of the Florentine area called against the layoffs announced by the multinational GKN by CGIL-CISL and UIL for next July 19.

It is a first important answer, but it will not be enough.

To counter the employer offensive in progress, it is necessary and urgent to rebuild a fabric of militant solidarity through a tenacious intervention to unify the entire trade union movement as well as the trade unions to which they belong. This can be achieved on condition that the militants and the militants of the class struggle are able to articulate unifying objectives such as:
- strong wage increases in the private and public sectors
- prolong the freeze on redundancies.
Claim and support forms of solidarity and support for disputes (also with self-managed resistance and mutual aid funds) in workplaces and territories;

-to counter repression with articulated forms of counter-information, overcoming identity logics in favor of a reconstructed class unity

Claim investments for:

- re-launch public health and education, together with the pension system, counteracting forms of privatization and contractual welfare;

- health and safety in the workplace;

- re-launch public transport, for concrete sustainable mobility and together with forms of energy saving to effectively combat climate change and environmental protection.

These are the objectives for the resumption of social opposition to the plans of capital and to return to winning, setting the prospects for the class unity of the entire struggle movement

Let us build the national general strike on these united objectives.
