Indefinite teachers strike in Slovakia has started (+photos)
25/01/2016
Teachers in Slovakia have begun an indefinite strike today. They demand higher wages, more money to be invested into education and changes in the system of teachers’ further education. The strike is organized by the Initiative of Slovak Teacher (ISU; www.isu.sk) which is an independent network of teachers regardless of union affiliation. You will find more information about events that led to the strike in the next External bulletin of the International Workers’ Association.

The IWA Secretariat enquired about practices of NGO Divé maky in Bratislava + interview
31. december 2015
At the end of last week representatives of the IWA Secretariat visited Slovakia and met with members of Priama akcia union (IWA Slovakia). The major topics of their discussions were issues related to illegal employment, onerous contracts and unpaid wages in both neighbouring countries. Representatives of the IWA Secretariat were particularly interested in the development of the conflict of Priama akcia with NGO Divé maky, shared experiences from conflicts and gave impulses for next steps. They wanted to personally meet with Mgr. Barbora Kohútiková from Divé maky who is responsible for the situation. However, no one was in Divé maky office on Monday forenoon, so a message was left in the mail box and on the doors. The situation was discussed also in form of an interview.

International Workers‘ Association’s videoconference on wage theft
24/03/2015
On Sunday, 23rd March 2015, the Secretariat of the IWA organized a videoconference on wage theft. The aim was to share experiences from conflicts against bosses and this way help others to act more effectively. We used this form of presentation and discussion for the first time and the result is very positive. Members of organization from Europe and USA took part in the videoconference, concretely from ZSP (IWA Poland), Portland Solidarity Network, Seattle Solidarity Network, Solidarity Federation – Brighton (IWA UK), ARS (IWA Bulgaria), PA (IWA Slovakia), ASI (IWA Serbia) and MASA (Croatia). The topic was highly practical and the discussions helped perhaps the most the members from organization that do not have much experience in organizing conflicts.

Protest in Bratislava against Amazon practices
31/01/2015
On Thursday, 29th January, Priama akcia (PA) union organized a protest action in front of the Amazon branch in Bratislava, in solidarity with workers in two Polish warehouses who stood up against the practices of Amazon and started to organize with support of Związek Syndykalistów Polski (ZSP).

Help the Solidarity Network from Most (Czech Republic) in their conflict related to child chicane
16/07/2014
Solidarity Network from Most (MSS) would like to ask you to send this protest e-mail to the Social Affairs Department of Most City Hall. Its employee from the Department of Social and Legal Protection of Children abused her position and violated the rights and dignity of a seven-year-old Jakub G. You can show your support easily by filling this simple e-form with a model protest letter that will be sent to the department. This is the second conflict of the MSS preceded by a victory in the case against Zepter International Ltd. from last year (see the article Solidarity Network from Most, Czech (MSS) got unpaid commissions from Zepter).

Priama akcia showed support to the women from Belchatow hospital
08/06/2014
On Thursday 5th June union Priama akcia organized a protest in front of Polish embassy in Bratislava. The ambassador was not present but a letter showing support to the demands of the former workers from the Belchatow hospital was given to the advisor of the ambassador. The advisor listened to the reasons of the protest, expressed understanding in the context of insecure jobs of everyone these days, promised to give the letter to the ambassador and inform the responsible authorities in Poland. We would like to thank all those who participated in the action. The women can be supported by sending a model protest email via e-form here soli.zsp.net.pl/protest-letter/emailpage.

For general strike in Poland – protest visit at the Polish embassy
12/09/2013
On Thursday, 12th September, Priama akcia visited the embassy of the Polish Republic in Bratislava. We presented a protest letter to a deputy of the ambassador, in which we expressed our support to the workers’ protests against the worsening working and social conditions.

Solidarity Network from Most, Czech (MSS) got unpaid commissions from Zepter
29/08/2013
We are happy to announce that the conflict with Zepter International Ltd. in the Czech Republic, in which Priama akcia actively participated, ended up in a victory for the MSS. In May 2013, the MSS were contacted by Žaneta, who worked for Zepter. She asked for help after her local manager Jiří Ozaňák had refused to pay her commissions she was entitled to. In a fraudulent way he had transferred them to the account of his relative Karolína Ozaňáková. The management of the company refused to address the problem and disputed its existence. Only after a series of collective direct actions the commissions were paid out. What follows is a description of the conflict from the beginning to its victorious end, including reflections on its significance for the future, written down and originally published by MSS.

Protests in support of CNT unions in conflict with companies operating in Slovakia
18/06/2013
On Sunday, 16th June, Priama akcia expressed its support to the CNT (IWA-Spain) union in Aranjuez, which is in conflict with Esymo Metal. This company is closely connected to Gestamp, a company with a factory in Veľký Meder (70 km from Bratislava). CNT fights for reinstatement of its member who demanded better working conditions in a local Esymo Metal branch. On Tuesday, 18th June, another protest took place in the Alstom branch in Bratislava in support of the CNT-Zamora struggle against planned closure of four factories in Spain.

Protest at the Slovak branch of ALSTOM in Bratislava
26/04/2013
On Thursday 25th April, members of Priama akcia and other activists supported the struggle of the Spanish workers against the plan of ALSTOM to close three factories and lay off nearly 400 people. Although we were not lucky to meet with the management in the Bratislava Alstom branch (allegedly they were too busy...), we handed over a protest letter and said to the receptionist that we demand that the company informs the headquarters in France about our visit. We also added that we would further monitor the conflict and if it didn’t get resolved, we would continue with protest and information activities.

Education workers’ strike in Slovakia after two weeks – global solidarity welcome!
12/12/2012
This is a very rough and hardly exhaustive summary of recent two weeks of strike in education sector in Slovakia. The strike is still on despite being put on hold by its initiator, the mainstream union OZ PŠaV. The relations between key players are mentioned very briefly and thus can not be interpreted as exhaustive. We hope this helps to explain what is going on in Slovakia but for an accurate analysis more time will be needed. Protest actions in front of Slovak institutions abroad are more than welcome – preferably this week!

Education workers’ strike sabotaged by the union – send a protest e-mail
28/12/2012
Workers in education sector in Slovakia have started an indefinite strike on Monday 26th, 2012. However, the education workers' union put the strike on hold on Wednesday, because they entered negotiations with the government. There are no results yet and the demands have not been met. Putting the strike on hold is nonsense as it discourages and demoralizes the striking workers. We would very much appreciate an international solidarity by sending an e-mail to the teachers’ union officials via the following online form as soon as possible. The text in the online form can be changed, so you can write it in a way you consider best. Spread this info as widely as possible. Some info on the strike in English can be found on the The Slovak Spectator. At the moment only one school with an independent union remains in strike (a secondary school in Bratislava).

Protest of PA-Bratislava in support of ZSP member fired from Roche Polska
23/10/2012
On 10th October a court hearing in the case of the ZSP member illegally fired from the pharmaceutical concern Roche took place. We already paid visit to the Slovak branch of Roche on 29th March 2012 and promised that if there wasn't any progress in the case of our comrade, we would return. This protest action took place on 10th October. We also sent protest fax messages to the company headquarters in Switzerland and to the branch in Poland. The court was adjourned due to the illness of the judge and the date of the next hearing has not been set yet, but we are prepared to pay a visit to the Slovak branch of Roche again.

Afterword: Activities Related to Workplace and Community in our Conditions
05/10/2012
In October 2012 Priama akcia (PA) will publish a pamphlet called “How to Create a Group Dealing with Workplace and Community Related Problems” in Slovak language. This Afterword is the final part of the pamphlet and was written by PA members. It is basically an attempt to take a look at the SeaSol concept from the Slovak perspective. At the same time it is an attempt to compare the approach taken by solidarity networks with the approach of anarchosyndicalist organizations. An English version is provided on PA website and on libcom.org with the aim to stir debate.

Warning strike in the education sector in Slovakia - two interviews with a member of Priama akcia (IWA Slovakia)
24/09/2012
On Thursday 13th September, a one day warning strike was organized in the education sector in Slovakia. Priama akcia interviewed its member working in the education sector about last year’s education workers’ protest, the functioning of a trade union on the school level, the situation in the workplace as well as the self-perception of a teacher as such. It was not our goal to analyze the whole issue based on a single case, therefore we would welcome comments. Our goal was to inform about the situation and also to provoke workers in the education sector to have more discussions – not only about the one day during which the schools were supposed to be closed. This interview was published in Slovak language on 11th September. After the strike our member was interviewed by members of the ZSP Education union. Both interviews in English are part of this article.

Action in Bratislava in support of ZSP member sacked from Roche Polska
29/03/2012
Today, Priama akcia-Bratislava organized a protest visit to two branches of Roche in Bratislava, Slovakia. It was the third day of March solidarity activities called by ZSP in support of their sacked member Jakub. During all three days we informed about the development of the struggle and provided people with an easy way to send protest e-mails via web. We also sent faxes to Roche branches in Poland, Switzerland and Slovakia.

International week against Ryanair practices in Slovakia
18/03/2012
Priama akcia – IWA Slovakia joined the International week against Ryanair practices in several ways. We published an article about the company scam on our website together with an appeal to send complaints and other possibilities how to express discontent with Ryanair practices – sending faxes, calling Ryanair and spreading the information as much as possible. We have also found several negative experiences of Slovak Ryanair workers on the Internet.

SPRÁVY

Najbližšie otvorené stretnutie bude 26. septembra
07.09.2020 Po júnovom stretnutí sa ďalšie otvorené stretnutie zväzu Priama akcia uskutoční v sobotu 26. septembra o 17:00 v bratislavskom Bystre. Budeme hovoriť o tom, ako by sme si navzájom vedeli pomôcť pri riešení problémov v regióne a ako podporiť aktivity, ktoré už prebiehajú. Budeme radi aj keď prídeš do diskusie s hocijakým vlastným bodom. Na stretnutí tiež budú naše propagačné materiály a publikácie. Môžeš si zobrať napríklad nálepky ku kampani venovanej koronakríze či brožúru „Ako sme si poradili s problémami v práci: Spory Priamej akcie 2015-2019“. Tešíme sa na stretnutie!

Najnovšie číslo Kapitálu aj s naším článkom o štrajkoch v školstve
13.03.2020 Redakcia časopisu Kapitál nás požiadala o príspevok k téme neposlušnosť a výsledkom je osobne ladený článok našej členky. „V rokoch 2012 a 2016 som sa ako učiteľka na jednom z bratislavských gymnázií zúčastnila protestov a štrajkov v školstve. Štrajk v roku 2012 sa stal jedným z najznámejších vyjadrení nespokojnosti pracujúcich v novodobých dejinách Slovenska. Zároveň bol predzvesťou štrajku v roku 2016, ktorý sa dá bezpochyby označiť za bezprecedentný prejav nezávislosti od klasických odborov.“

(Ne)voliť nestačí – Po voľbách sa nič nekončí
26.02.2020 Už o niekoľko dní sa na základe výsledkov volieb začne vytvárať koaličná vláda a my si vypočujeme, že teraz treba čakať. Najprv na prvých sto dní, ako je zvykom, potom do polovice volebného obdobia, a napokon na ďalšie voľby. Štátne inštitúcie a firmy budú robiť všetko preto, aby v novej situácii čo najefektívnejšie presadili svoje záujmy cez vlastné organizácie a kontakty. A my zatiaľ (znova) prestaneme existovať.

(Ne)voliť nestačí – Voliť či nevoliť? O čom sú voľby
18.02.2020 Pozastavme sa na chvíľu ani nie tak nad odpoveďou na túto otázku, ale nad tým, ako uvažujeme v období pred voľbami a ako vlastne funguje zastupiteľská demokracia.

Otvorené stretnutie v deň volieb – program akcie
17.02.2020 S blížiacim sa termínom predvolebného otvoreného stretnutia v Bratislave aktualizujeme jeho program.

(Ne)voliť nestačí - Organizovanie sa
11.02.2020 V práci aj v bežnom živote riešime problémy väčšinou bez toho, aby sme sa nejako špeciálne organizovali. Keď chceme na niečo poukázať alebo sa niekoho zastať, vieme to urobiť v podstate hocikedy. Stačí trocha zdravého rozumu a odvahy. Je však veľa problémov, ktoré sa dajú len ťažko vyriešiť bez skutočnej organizácie a plánovania.

Otvorené stretnutie so zväzom Priama akcia v januári
04.01.2020 V otvorených stretnutiach pokračujeme aj v novom roku. Jedno už máme naplánované na deň volieb vo februári, no stretneme sa aj v januári. Naposledy (v novembri) boli výsledkom stretnutia tri aktivity (článok o štrajku pracujúcich proti klimatickej zmene, účasť na klimatickom štrajku a solidarita s protestmi v Čile). Dúfame, že praktický presah budú mať aj ďalšie stretnutia. Vidíme sa v sobotu 18. januára o 16:00 v komunitnej obývačke Bystro. Viac o stretnutiach sa dozvieš nižšie.

Zväz CNT-Tarragona hlási úspech po desiatich mesiacoch v spore
21.12.2019 Po desiatich mesiacoch sa 13. decembra dohodou skončil spor s predajňou tabaku Estanco Nº 2 de El Vendrell. K dohode došlo bez súdneho sporu a zapojenia právnikov. Rozhodli priame akcie.

Nálepky (Ne)voliť nestačí sú tu!
22.11.2019 Chceš podporiť túto myšlienku vo svojom regióne? Ozvi sa, pošleme!
Budú k dispozícii aj na otvorenom stretnutí v Bystre v BA už túto sobotu od 16:00. Viac info: nájdeš tu.


Otvorené stretnutie so zväzom Priama akcia v novembri
09.11.2019 Po hodnotnom prvom stretnutí minulý mesiac bude v novembri ďalšie. Pokračujeme v našej snahe o diskusie a spoločné aktivity ľudí, ktorým je blízky triedny prístup. Diskusie vychádzajú z potrieb a záujmov ľudí na stretnutiach a zámer je, aby mali praktický presah. Vidíme sa v sobotu 23. novembra o 16:00 v komunitnej obývačke Bystro. Viac o stretnutiach sa dozvieš nižšie.

Rozšírme myšlienku „(Ne)voliť nestačí“ do regiónov!
28.10.2019 V rámci príprav na aktivity, ktorými chceme rozšíriť myšlienku „(Ne)voliť nestačí“, by sme radi znova zdôraznili, že sa chceme vyhnúť naťahovaniu sa o to, či voliť alebo nevoliť. Nájdu sa hlasy, ktoré tvrdia, že treba voliť napríklad preto, aby sa do parlamentu nedostali neofašistické tendencie. Ide o veľmi dobrý príklad, na ktorom sa pokúsime vysvetliť pointu kampane. Viac informácií o plánovanej kampani, do ktorej sa môžeš zapojiť, nájdeš tu.

(Ľavicová) žurnalistika – skúsenosť s redakciou blogu Pole
22.10.2019 Seriózna žurnalistika by mala byť bez ohľadu na politickú orientáciu korektná. Očakáva sa, že človek, ktorý chce o niečom písať, si tému nielen vopred naštuduje, ale bude tiež vnímavo pristupovať k poznámkam „respondentov“. Platí to pre klasické články aj pre rozhovory. Teda malo by. Naša skúsenosť s redakciou blogu Pole bola iná.

Fotoreport z klimatického štrajku v Bratislave (20. 9. 2019)
20.09.2019 K dnešnému protestu na Námestí slobody sme sa ako organizácia vyjadrili stanoviskom zverejneným na webe, ale aj osobnou účasťou na mieste v rámci „tmavozeleného“ bloku, ktorý pochodoval za veľkým transparentom kolektívu Bod obratu „Zmeňme systém, nie klímu“.

Zväz SolFed vybojoval spoločne s pracovníkom hotela dlžnú mzdu
08.05.2019 Bývalému pracovníkovi v kuchyni dlhoval hotel Harbour v Brightone 3 odpracované dni, zmluvnú odmenu (prepitné a bonus) a peniaze za nevyčerpanú dovolenku. Celková dlžná suma presahovala 1000 libier.

Kapela Železná kolóna vydáva nový album „Každý deň píšeme dejiny“
30.04.2019 Po 12 rokoch a opäť symbolicky na 1. mája vychádza nový album Železnej kolóny s názvom „Každý deň píšeme dejiny“. Digitálnu verziu s piatimi songmi je možné vypočuť/stiahnuť si na bandcampe a youtube.
