(en) France, UCL AL #318 - Unionism, 42. Nadejda Tilhou (SUD-Culture Loiret): "our work is unpaid, invisible" (ca, de, it, fr, pt)[machine translation]

Date Fri, 30 Jul 2021 09:03:19 +0300

Nadejda Tilhou is intermittent, author and trade unionist, in the fight against the reform of unemployment insurance. Against the backdrop, and as in other sectors (bicycle delivery men, auto-entrepreneurs), the question of the type of contract and the salary. ---- What has been the impact of the crisis on authors ? ---- There are 270,000 authors in France, in different sectors, visual artists, audiovisual, books etc. Many of them are in a state of structural precariousness and have been particularly affected by the crisis linked to Covid. A mobilization was first outlined by sector, because we had missed the aid of 2020, poorly known, administratively complicated. As there are no professional elections, Bachelot affirms that she has no interlocutors, although she could have found them: at the national level there are more than 30 associations, artists' collectives, even unions like the CGT among plastic surgeons.

How did this movement start ?

The intermittent and intermittent began to meet at the busy Orleans theater from March. We hung up the housewarming house of the Authors' House on May 12, which gave visibility to the mobilization. We came from different professional sectors, each with their own specificity, but we looked for what brought us together. First of all, there is a feeling of chaos, of ignorance of authors by employers. Then, that of being despoiled. Our work is unpaid, invisible.

How did you build your claims ?

We relied heavily on Aurélien Catin's book Notre Condition. Essay on the salary in artistic work . He describes two modes of remuneration of authors: the control agreement, which dates from the XIX thcentury, and the most common, the "credited" on future broadcasting rights. So it is not the work, but the exploitation of the product that is remunerated. There is no statute of the author, just a statute of the work.

We would like the employees, and not their works, to be supported. We therefore demand a specific support fund for authors, like the one obtained by the plastic surgeons. But this also naturally led us to discuss wage employment, which gives a more distant horizon to our immediate demands.

Have there been similar mobilizations in other cities ?

Yes in Nantes, La Rochelle, Niort... We wanted to get in touch with these other cities but we were not successful due to lack of time and availability. There may have been a lack of a specific space for authors in the national coordinations. We are currently looking to develop links within the Center region.
