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