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.

Solidarity Message to NUMSA Motor

Dear colleagues, In the difficult collective bargaining in the automobile industry and the long struggle for a collective bargaining result, the workforces were always close to the strike. Now you are in a hard fight for your justified demands. In the face of a possible strike to enforce your demands we would like to send you our warmest solidarity greetings and give you our support.

New published June 1, 2019: DRAFT OF PROGRAM OF STRUGGLE FOR THE SECOND INTER- NATIONAL AUTOMOTIVE WORKERS CONFERENCE (IAWC) IN JOHANNESBURG / SOUTH AFRICA IN FEBRUARY 2020

The first objective of the 2nd IAWC is the realization of an effective coordination of the struggles of automotive workers. International workers unity is important to oppose the greed of the multinational corporations. The global distribution of this international program of struggle, its discussion in the run-up and its approval at the IAWC and the conducting of International Automotive Workers Conferences will serve this purpose. We work on the basis of its decisions and organizational principles. In order to achieve the goal of coordinating the automotive workers, the 2nd IAWC should specify a program of struggle, in which our vision for the future and our most important demands in the international joint struggle are precisely formulated.
