(en) France, Alternative Libertaire AL #280 - La Poste: Strike virus against understaffing (fr, it, pt) [machine translation]

Date Mon, 5 Mar 2018 09:17:14 +0200

The conflictuality is rising at the Post Office, with a succession of localized strikes, very followed, and often victorious. But that do not turn into an overall movement capable of bending the direction. ---- For several weeks, the post office teems with local conflicts: Carhaix (29), Guadeloupe, Piton-Saint-Leu (Reunion), Saint-Herblain (44), Rennes, Tarascon (13) ... Letter carriers are striking to say stop under-staffing and increasing their workload. ---- La Poste, citing the decline in letter traffic, has, for years, suppressed tens of thousands of jobs. However, if this decline in traffic is real, that of the recommended, followed letters and parcels - especially from Asia - has literally exploded. If we add the flyers in the workload, and the removal of rounds, the cup is full. The agents and the agents can no longer render a quality public service within the allotted time. La Poste closes the holes with precarious: temporary workers, fixed-term contracts, assisted contracts are legion.

64 days of strike at Ris-Orangis

On the side of the post offices, the situation is catastrophic: management announces schedule reductions and closures throughout the territory. At Ris-Orangis (91), the counter and teller have done, at the end of 2017, 64 (!) Days of strike against the suppression of 4 jobs and the drastic reduction of schedules. This beginning of the year is in continuity, with its batch of announcements of closures: in Brittany (Saint-Brieuc whose 3 offices must close, Le Palais, Vannes), in Lorraine (Liverdun), in the Loiret (Fleury-les -Aubrais), in Côte-d'Or (Pourrain), in the Hauts-de-Seine (7 offices concerned). The local population, thankfully, does not let it go. Supported by the elected officials, in association with the unions (most often SUD and CGT), the users and petitioners, gather in front of the threatened offices,

Fighting pays off - many local conflicts result in victories - but the addition of local conflicts is not enough to push La Poste down on its overall strategy. It has set ambitious objectives in terms of turnover by 2020. But the results are not at the rendezvous and the " levers of growth " (diversification of services, purchases of subsidiaries) both praised by leaders are primarily pretexts for restructuring. The " conquest " is therefore waiting, the Post presses, again and again, on its employees. Regardless of their health and quality of service.

Faced with this, workers, users and users have every interest in grouping their forces impose in the political debate the question of the future of public postal service and stop this spiral of hellish demolition whose sole purpose is to boost profitability !
