ITALY - SELF-ORGANIZED FIAT FCA WORKERS: APPEAL TO ALL WORKERS, ALL UNIONS AND MOVEMENTS

WE APPEAL TO ALL PEOPLE WHO HAVE AT HEART THE FUTURE OF THE WORKING CLASS, TO ALL THOSE WHO DO NOT ACCEPT THE SOCIAL BUTCHERY ENACTED BY THE BOSSES, THE GOVERNMENTS OF EVERY COLOR AND UNION OFFICIALS ON THE PAYROLL OF THE POWERFUL.

 

THE MOVEMENT "SELF-ORGANIZED FIAT-FCA WORKERS" HAS LAUNCHED A DAY OF STRUGGLE IN ALL ITALIAN FCA PLANTS FOR MARCH 23, 2018 TO CLAIM JOB GUARANTEES, BETTER WORKING AND LIVING CONDITIONS, HIGHER WAGES FOR A MORE DECENT LIFE.

OUR DEMANDS ARE MORE THAN LEGITIMATE ESPECIALLY IN THIS VERY DIFFICULT MOMENT FOR THE ENTIRE AUTOMOBILE SECTOR, WHICH IS GOING TO BRING ABOUT THE LOSS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS, AND THE FIRST ONES THAT ARE GOING TO PAY THIS HUGE PRICE WILL BE THE WORKERS OF POMIGLIANO AND MIRAFIORI, BUT THE SAME WILL HAPPEN AT ALL THE FCA SITES.

FOR THESE REASONS WE HAVE DECIDED TO ORGANIZE, AT THE SAME TIME OF NEXT FRIDAY'S STRIKE, A GREAT DEMONSTRATION BEFORE THE FCA PLANT OF POMIGLIANO. WE WANT TO DIRECT THE SPOTLIGHT ON A SYMBOL OF WORKER STRUGGLES, BUT WHICH IS CURRENTLY LIVING A DRAMATIC CONDITION DUE TO MISCONCEIVED INVESTMENT SERVED BY THE BOSSES ONLY AS ADVERTISING SPOT.

WE APPEAL TO ALL THE WORKERS OF ALL UNIONS, TO PUT ASIDE THE USELESS PAROCHIAL DISPUTES THAT CAUSE SO MUCH DAMAGE TO THE WORKING CLASS.

THIS IS NOT THE MOMENT TO WASTE OUR TIME IN QUARRELS BETWEEN TRADE UNION LEADERS. OUR CONDITION OF EXPLOITED WORKERS RISKING SOON TO ENTER THE ALREADY OVERCROWDED RANKS OF THE UNEMPLOYED DOES NOT ALLOW IT TO ANYBODY, AND HE WHO PURSUES THE ROAD OF WORKERS' FRAGMENTATION ASSUMES A HEAVY AND SERIOUS RESPONSIBILITY ...

WE ARE AT FEW STEPS FROM THE PRECIPICE AND WE MUST PREVENT WITH ALL OUR FORCES TO BE LET DOWN BY AN UNSCRUPULOUS BOSS.

MANY FELLOW WORKERS FROM DIFFERENT PLANTS ARE JOINING OUR RANKS AND THIS MAKES US PROUD TO BE PART OF THEWORKING CLASS.

NEXT FRIDAY WE WILL BE BEFORE POMIGLIANO'S GATES BY NOON, WE WILL BE A BIG CROWD AND MAYBE FOR THE FIRST TIME AFTER MANY YEARS OF EMPTY PROCLAMATIONS WE'LL HAVE THE STRENGTH TO LET THE WORLD KNOW THAT FCA WORKERS ARE STILL LIVE AND LOTTANO UNITI !!
