Successful day of strike of the CGT in Sochaux

22 June 2021: Correspondence: Today a strike action took place in front of the Stellantis plant in Sochaux / France. The call of the CGT for a nationwide strike day against the attacks at Stellantis, Renault and supplier factories with a total of four regional assemblies in France, in Sochaux for the region 'Grand Est', was a good initiative. The International Automotive Workers' Coordination welcomed it very much.

In total, about 200 colleagues participated. Delegations from other unions came and showed their solidarity. We went there from Germany with a delegation from the IAC, from Opel workers from Bochum, Eisenach and Rüsselsheim, and from Daimler from Sindelfingen. There was a warm welcome. The colleagues were very happy about the visit from Germany. We expressed our solidarity in a speech. It was important that we attacked the anti-communism that is supposed to divide us workers, that we have to unite more closely and that we also have to deal with the influence of anti-communism. This caused a lot of discussion within the rally. We made other important contacts, for example with workers in Vesoul. Stellantis also has a spare parts warehouse there, which is always in competition with the warehouse in Bochum. At the change of shift we distributed the Solidarity Charter of the GM-Stellantis group coordination of the IAC and the International Program of Struggle of the 2nd Automotive Workers' Conference in mass to the workers who drove by in their cars. All in all, it was a very successful visit to France. We became more connected with our colleagues there.
