They say we are in crisis time, but bankers, traders, CEOs and many otherscontinue to receive incredible incomes. Meanwhile, living conditions of workers and unemployed, etc.., are increasingly deteriorating. Precarious workers are particularly affected by the rising of unemployment. So temporary work agencies take advantage of an exploitable labor, that is forced to accept the conditions set by employers, to avoid the the risk of no longer being proposed for new missions and fearing of being repressed by the JobAgency (which is closer to a police station than anything).
Some workers reject this logic. So it is precisely because she has refused her inhuman conditions that a militant of the CNT-AIT Zaragoza (Spain) Union, who was employee of STARTPEOPLE, has been fired illegally. Indeed, in November 2009, workers of the said temporary work agency received a letter challenging the previous labor contracts and degrading working conditions, under threat of beingnfired or not renewed.
In STARTPEOPLE, fight against the degradation of working conditions is grounds for dismissal.
Several sections of the IWA (International Workers Association ) were mobilized across Europe in April to show their support to the Zaragoza CNT-AIT struggle. In late April, the convention Startpeople wanted to impose over workers has been declared illegal. But the irregular dismissal of the militant of the CNT-AIT Zaragoza has not been recognized. Consequently, the mobilization continues.
Here, or in Spain or anywhere, the same attacks by the same capitalists. Oppressed and exploited workers may adopt two positions in faced of this situation : to surrender or to fight for their dignity. Capitalism has no borders, nor has our fight ! It is for this reason that we, anarchosyndicalists organized within the International Workers Association, put forward the international solidarity.
SOLIDARITY WITH WORKERS IN STRUGGLE !
The EMANCIPATION OF WORKERS WILL BE THE DUTY OF WORKERS THEMSELVES
