(en) Russia, AIT: CNT-AIT(E) in labor disputes July and August 2022 (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Thu, 15 Sep 2022 09:48:38 +0300

In the midst of the hot summer and the holiday season, the anarcho-syndicalists of the CNT-AIT trade union organization (a section of the International Workers' Association in Spain) continued to fight for the interests of workers. Here are just some of the messages from various parts of the country - Asturias, Castile, Catalonia and other regions ---- Langreo. The CNT-AIT organization in Langreo supported the indefinite strike launched on August 16 by the decision of the assembly of social and medical workers in home care. The strikers in Asturias are demanding, inter alia, a 35-hour workweek, payment for overtime work, additional payment for the use of personal transport, an end to precarization and the system of temporary employment, various measures to improve working conditions and wages (https://www.facebook.com/cntaitfelguera /posts/pfbid02YdQmktC1CACYGAn5eqh...). Anarcho-syndicalists participate in protests, also criticizing the conciliation of the "systemic" bureaucratic trade unions. On August 26, the workers at the assembly rejected the proposals of the employers and decided to continue the struggle.

Toledo. The CNT-AIT interprofessional union in Toledo is in labor disputes with a number of firms and establishments in the city. Since the beginning of July, the struggle with the administration of the McDonald's and Pikuli restaurants has continued in connection with the dismissal of a worker from the establishment on Abadia, who systematically exposed the arbitrariness and abuse of the authorities and began organizing workers to defend their rights. Since July 2, pickets have been held outside institutions calling for a boycott: they meet with a positive response, and many refuse to visit at the sight of a protest (https://toledo.cnt-ait.org/?p=838#more-838).

Actions of solidarity with the dismissed are also organized in other cities of the country, such as, for example, on July 23 in Albacete (https://cntaitalbacete.es/2022/07/sindical-piquete-en-solidaridad-con-la...)

At the end of July, a conflict broke out in Toledo with Carrosados Teknai, which is part of the Teknove group, in connection with the dismissal of a comrade; Since August 8, pickets have been held at the entrance to the enterprise (https://toledo.cnt-ait.org/?p=851#more-851).

The union also reports on the successful operation of a self-managed vegetable garden organized by the union's "consumer group" (https://toledo.cnt-ait.org/?p=857

Figueres (Girona). The CNT-AIT is fighting the owner of the San Miquel campsite in Colera on the Costa Brava near Girona, who is both the local alcalde (mayor) and the uncrowned king of the entire area. Workers are hired on a temporary basis, deprived of their social security rights, forced to work 12 hours a day, six days a week. Working conditions are the most difficult. The workers formed a cell of the CNT-AIT union and presented the owner with collective demands: a one-year contract, a 40-hour work week and an increase in the number of staff. Having met with a refusal, five workers turned to the labor inspectorate. On 29 June, the owner banned the public work of the union in the campsite (http://solfed.org.uk/newcastle/anger-at-the-colera-campsite) and on 1 July fired its delegate *https://sovmadrid.org/yellow_village-despido -delegado_sindical). Moreover, the campsite administrator accused the fired man of allegedly threatening his colleagues with death if they did not join the union (https://colera-santmiquel.cntfigueres.org/es/articulo/218)

The anarcho-syndicalists launched a protest campaign calling for a boycott of the campsite. The Spanish comrades also turned to other sections of the International Workers' Association for support, given that camping is part of the European group of companies "Yelloh Village", which has 84 establishments in France, 6 in Spain and 3 in Portugal. Activists of the CNT-AIT France (a section of the M.A.T. in France) organized a picket at one of the group's campsites near Toulouse. Comrades from various cities took part in the action. Arrived at the beginning of August in an anarcho-syndicalist summer camp for rest and discussions. A banner accusing Kolera's "Yellow Village" of exploitation and leaflets were made. Divided into two groups, the protesters located at two entrances to the campsite and informed the campers about the conflict, causing a sympathetic reaction among them (http://cnt-ait.info/2022/08/02/colera-solidarite/). The Solidarity Federation (SF, section of the I.A.T. in Britain) called on anyone wishing to camp at Kohler to give up this intention until the demands of the workers are met, and all workers at Yelloh campsites and holiday camps to express solidarity with colleagues in Kohler.

Gijón. The CNT-AIT union section at Pizza Hut is fighting against the collective layoff of 18 workers (http://blog.cntgijon.org/ere-pizza-hut/). Comrades in other cities also show solidarity with them. Thus, on July 7, activists of the CNT-AIT cell in Alcala de Henares informed the employees of the establishment in Torrejon de Ardoz and residents about the conflict (https://cntmadrid.org/alcala-torrejon-ere-pizza-hut/)
