(en) Germany Berlin, Die Platform: Class Strike (ca, de, it, pt, tr)[machine translation]

Date Mon, 30 Jan 2023 08:44:44 +0200

The right to strike in Germany is one of the most restrictive in all of Europe. It is based on the class compromise of the Volksgemeinschaft (national community) and appears today as the so-called Sozialpartnerschaft (social partnership). Following the German right to strike, a strike should have the goal of sealing the class compromise by collective agreement for further years. ---- Wild (non-union) or political strikes find themselves at least in a (labor) criminal gray zone - if we cannot even speak of a de facto ban. ---- That we as class-conscious anti-capitalists oppose the Sozialpartnerschaft-compromise, including its idea of strike, results from our self-conception.
Despite this rejection, we will always fight for our interests, and thus for the interests of the wage-dependent class. We will always show solidarity with union struggles for the notorious (slightly) bigger piece of the pie.

However, our conception of the workers‘ struggle always includes further political and social struggles, and the abolition of the class society as a consequence of these struggles remains the claim of our demands. The strike as such - whether in trade union contexts or within spontaneous work suspensions - is our most important mean of class struggle negotiation, no matter whether we are concerned with a collective general strike or only with the concrete improvement of the existing situation.

The fact that state institutions, regardless of nation and constitution, have no interest whatsoever in lifting the stability of the exploitative conditions of labor and society out of their seams, should also not present itself to the inclined reader as a particularly new phenomenon at this point.

That's why we don't give a damn about Sozialpartnerschaft and state paternalism, and fight for the right to strike ourselves.

So join us in supporting the "Kampagne für ein umfassendes Streikrecht"!
