(en) Greece, protaanka: Solidarity with the workers in Malamatina (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Sun, 11 Sep 2022 08:37:12 +0300

For the last one month the workers in Malamatina have been conducting a fair and necessary struggle. With mobilizations, work stoppages and rolling strikes, they are demanding the signing of a collective labor agreement and the rehiring of 15 dismissed workers, since, despite the signed commitments to secure the positions of the workers during the transition of Malamatina to the Mantis group, what was agreed was not implemented. ---- The employer, having first broken its promises, has the audacity to threaten and denounce the workers with provocative announcements, to organize anti-labor mechanisms and to cooperate with the government to beat them. In this context, on Wednesday 31/8, police forces, by order of the government and the employer, vigorously attacked the workers on strike and their solidarity, who were conducting a strike blockade from early in the morning outside the company's factory in Kalochori Thessaloniki. The attack resulted in injuries and the transfer of six workers to the hospital, as well as the arrest of two of them. The police force was escorting a guard of riotous ruffians and their mission was to get them inside the factory. As a result of the above events, on Thursday 1/9 the police forces occupied the factory from the morning, outside which a strike gathering of workers and solidarity workers was taking place, following the assertion of their just demands.

The workers in Malamatina, having the broad support and solidarity of workers and unions from other sectors, persist in their struggle through the strike and new mobilizations, despite the employer and state terrorism they are experiencing. The intransigence of labor demands, the persistence and militancy of united workers, as has been proven historically, are conditions for the vindication of demands, which was also recently demonstrated by the victorious outcome of the struggle of the workers in Kavalaoil, who massively , militantly and with self-sacrifice they fought and succeeded in imposing the conditions so that their demands could be implemented.

In a period in which the world of work is under severe attack by capital and the state, in a period in which the right to strike and trade union freedoms are curtailed starting with the Ahtsioglou law and then with the Hatzidakis law, we see all over the country mass labor struggles to break out blocking the plans of the state and bosses. Such recent examples are the struggles in e-food, Kavala Oil, LARCO, Cosco and now Malamatina.

We, for our part, stand in solidarity with the workers in all these struggles and expect both the victory of their claims and the progress of their quality contents. We look forward to the overall development of a labor movement which will be based on the mass and bottom-up organization of workers in all branches, the unity of the working class and the uncompromising militant class struggle of the workers themselves without political bosses and patronages to claim better working conditions. Of a labor movement that fights and struggles, evolves and wins, building the conditions that will allow the leap to fulfill the historical necessity: the revolutionary seizure of the means of production, the socialization of the wealth that the working class produces and the equality in its distribution for the coverage of social goods.

The violence against the workers in Malamatina is violence against the entire working class and must be reversed. Because the struggle of the workers in Malamatina is a struggle and an affair of the entire working class.

Strength and solidarity to the workers in Malamatina

Boycott the company's products

We can do without bosses
