Call for solidarity

A short timeline of the events

A few days before the winter holidays, 21 out of the 23 workers working on the Brown production line started a wildcat strike by which they were demanding to receive the bonusses that were promised to all the factory workers. At the beginning of the strike, the employer (by way of the human resources department personnel and the higher staff of the workers) asked the striking workers to leave the facility of the factory. During the strike the women workers received threats, being told that they were going to face the consequences of their actions by being fired.

Call for international solidarity!

We have found out from the women workers that took part in the wildcat strike at the end of the last year that the factory’s management in the town of Jucu, Cluj county, keep on forcing their employees to sign resignations as a penalty for their action.

A short timeline of the events

A few days before the winter holidays, 21 out of the 23 workers working on the Brown production line started a wildcat strike by which they were demanding to receive the bonusses that were promised to all the factory workers. At the beginning of the strike, the employer (by way of the human resources department personnel and the higher staff of the workers) asked the striking workers to leave the facility of the factory. During the strike the women workers received threats, being told that they were going to face the consequences of their actions by being fired.

Activity in the Jucu facility was halted during the entire winter holiday season. After 1st of January, the women workers returned to work, only to find out that they have been redistributed on different lines and shifts so that they could no longer communicate between them. Basically, the employer (by way of his representatives) tried to break apart the workers group that expressed their disapproval regarding those inequities.

On the 17th of January, 5 of the workers that took part in the strike were called, one at a time, to discuss with the representatives of the human resources department and other upper administrative staff. So, at the end of a talk in which the workers felt intimidated, each was offered to sign a document. That document could not be read since its content was deliberately covered using the hand by the person that proposed the signing, and the content was not presented in a spoken manner neither. Only after they signed these documents were the workers informed that they were no longer employees of the company.

Afterwards, another worker “filled its resignation” (actually was constrained to do so) in the same manner that doesn’t respect the workers dignity, neither their freedom to choose if they desire to resign or not – which is a fundamental right protected by the labor code and the individual work contracts.

On the 19th of January, our community sent a letter to the management of the De’Longhi company asking them to stop these abusive tactics, but we didn’t receive any answer. Moreover, Wednesday, the 25th of January, two more workers found themselves in the position to be forced to quit against their own will.

Considering all of the things that happened, we think that this is a good oportunity to ask the employers directy to stop deploying tactics which hurt the dignity of their workers, and more important, to stop forcing them to quit their jobs. These kind of tactics are undoubtedly illegal, abusive, and immoral, and the signers of this letter will continue to offer their solidairty with the factory workers persecuted by the company.

To offer your solidarity with the workers, you can ask the management of De’Longhi Romania to treat their employees fairly, to satisfy all their demands, and to stop immediately with their abusive tactics, at the following e-mail adress and fax number:

imageThe Romanian working class: sitting ducks in the open fire of capitalism May 16 by noaptefaraluna 0 comments

There are about 5 million employees in Romania, currently. Some other 3 million people (a quarter of the local work force) work in other countries from the European Union, mostly Spain and Italy. The official unemployed people are said to represent 6.7%, but this is not accurate. This number covers only people who have been registered, and it is not calculated according to the entire number of people who could work but are left out. Therefore, the real number of the unemployed people is not really known (or it is not reported by the government), but a logic deduction puts it somewhere at an additional one million people.

Short introduction of the so called "Miners March", when in 1999 angry miners of the Zhil-valley (Romania) wanted to go to the capital, to protest against their circumstances. The text focuses on the ever actual confrontation between trade union leaders and proletarian interests.
