2nd International Automotive Workers Conference 2020

Charter of Solidarity for Workers of GM PSA / FCA

(Started at the 5th international Automotive Workers' Counsel 2007, enlarged 2012 and 2020) We, the delegates and unions at plants of GM, PSA and FCA, we declare: We fight against the violation of workers' rights, destruction of jobs and against working conditions that damage our health and livelihood. The lack of rights is carried to extremes by contract work worldwide. We do not agree with „any job“ and we won't sell our working places. Our youth needs for their future working places with decent conditions. Young and old together are responsable for the future of the youth. Therefore we fight for every job!

The international coordination of automotive workers has a great future for which we are all working

Declaration of solidarity to the Sitech-Collegues in Hanover and Wolfsburg from South Africa

Dear colleagues, We have learned, that the Sitech-company wants to destroy 270 jobs in Hanover and 34 in Wolfsburg. Their intention is to increase their profit by outsourcing your seat production. This is part of VW's strategy to dump the consequences of the crisis on your back. We remember well, that two years ago, also at Christmas and the turn of the year 2017 to 2018, there was a fierce battle against the dismissal of 200 temporary workers in Hanover and Wolfsburg.
