In India, Gig Workers Challenge Platforms Online in War of Words

Corporations in the #gigeconomy have massive advertising budgets and sleek campaigns that distort the realities of the industry. In #India, food delivery drivers are taking to social media to change public opinion.

Social media accounts like #DeliveryBhoy, #SwiggyDEHyd, and Zomato Delivery Partners share struggles of #gigworkers, gaining attention of consumers and brands - Swiggy, Zomato - who are forced to respond because of public pressure.

Indian Federation Of App Based Transport Workers helps workers use social media, in addition to organizing #strikes and pursuing litigation. “When we write on social media, we connect directly with our users so that they know firsthand what our struggles are,” #IFAT's Shaik Salauddin said.

【對大局「毫無貢獻」,所以馬雲「跌落神壇」,孟晚舟備受追捧?】全文:https://bit.ly/3F0Kb4V

曾被尊稱「爸爸」、號稱「為窮人服務」的馬雲,如今卻被「你的工人爺爺來了」,一把掃進歷史的垃圾堆;同樣多次被曝清洗、剝削員工的華為,為何卻能被網絡上的「工人爺爺」們放過,在輿論批評中幾乎隱身?

從馬克思而論,馬雲和孟晚舟都是剝削階級,但對於贏得新光環的後者卻有「#強國代言人」以供抵消,相對的,誰若指出其剝削,就是「酸」,就是挑戰工業強國路線。誠然,《共產黨宣言》說「工人沒有祖國」,但當前的階級討論卻完全不同,而是 #民族主義 的──誰符合國家的路線,誰就獲得了免罪金牌,反之,也就隨輿論所拋棄……https://bit.ly/3F0Kb4V

ACFTU in Beijing Issues Guidelines for Unionizing Gig Workers: What Comes Next?

The #Beijing Municipal Federation of Trade Unions (BMFTU) has introduced guidelines designed to regulate and encourage unionization for “gig” delivery drivers, workers and labourers in China’s capital city.

This first step by the union is indeed a positive, if the BMFTU is able and willing to represent Beijing’s #gigeconomy workers. For the union to materially improve the conditions for #gigworkers, the workers themselves must be able to have a voice in the union.

What the global labor movement can learn from the repression of Hong Kong unions - Lausan

//Along with the widespread repression of all aspects of civil society, the fall of 職工盟(HKCTU) and #HKFTU’s now-complete monopoly on labor politics signals that the CCP seeks to disallow all organized vehicles for independent politics. In other words, the international left and #labormovement’s usual paradigms for independent labor have become unavailable in #HongKong. Like in the Mainland, any glimmers of independent organizing beyond containable spontaneous and ephemeral direct labor actions are illegal. This is not even to mention the prospects of building #union reform caucuses, transitional organizations, and other formations to assist and support independent workers’ politics from the outside, or any left-wing agitational groupings that aim to develop a mass base from rank-and-file struggles.//

#leftwing #tradeunion Lausan 流傘

Hong Kong teaches us that we need new paradigms for change still grounded in the potential of independent workers’ organizing.

第十七期 南京机场疫情失控,启动工会问责刻不容缓

7月20日,#南京禄口机场 保洁员集体感染 #德尔塔变种病毒,之后感染链不断延长,相继波及十余省份,影响数千人感染病毒。在工作岗位聚集感染,如此重大责任事故,上下左右前后全方位追责问责之时,相关各级 #工会 却好像从来不曾存在似的。

#江苏省“省部属企事业工会”专责 #安全生产 的工作人员认为,此次疫情爆发是机场管理层的问题,与工会无关;江苏省总工会 #纪委 称,机场工会由机场党委领导,江苏省总工会纪委无权对这些工会进行问责。现行体制下,无论省内哪级工会履责不力,省总工会都无权追责和问责。

工会并非不知道企业的 #疫情防控 工作属于工人 #劳动保护 和日常安全生产的范围。新冠疫情出现以来,江苏省总工会早早下发了有关复工复产防疫安全的提示函,工会领导曾两次到机场进行实地调研、参与疫情防控工作……可是,没有哪一级工会主席了解到机场管理方违章指挥、强令工人冒险作业。

封锁政策下,越南工人挣扎度日

在新型冠状病毒传播的最初18个月中,#越南 一直是防疫“优等生”。直至变种德尔塔毒株引发的灾难性爆发,打破了越南长达一年半的良好表现。

五月份以来,毗邻 #胡志明市 的高度工业化省份 #平阳(#BinhDuong)已录得14多万宗确诊个案,死亡个案1210宗,成为了全国疫情第二大重灾区。政府并没有强制 #工厂 停工停产,而是出台两项防疫措施应供企业选择:要么,让工人待在“工厂气泡”中,吃饭、睡觉、工作全在工厂内解决;要么,为工人提供工厂外的临时性住宿,并且提供通勤服务保证工人只能往返居住点和工厂之间。

可是对工人而言,选择待在“工厂气泡”中,工厂卫生情况堪忧;选择回到家中,不仅收入锐减,#封锁政策 下基本日用品的供应也成问题……

High-level guidance on platform employment lacks teeth

On 16 July, several ministries and commissions released standards on platform workers’ labour conditions. These Guiding Opinions on Protecting Labour and Social Security Rights and Interests of Workers Engaged in New Forms of Employment are high-level guidance, and it is left to local governments to work out how to implement them.

So far, neither local governments nor #tradeunions have shown any resolve to stop tech giants from dodging employer responsibilities by using intermediaries, or to limit the platforms’ power to deal out fines. Instead, the focus is on small adjustments to wages, and reactive responses to the exploitative relationship, such as work-related injuries and #labourdisputes. The fundamental relationship between workers and these giants remains the same.

Dreams of a delivery workers union crash into Latin American realities

After April 2020, something new began to emerge: solidarity stops.

//These worker-run pop-up stops were created to allow #drivers to congregate, rest, and bond. The time and location of the #solidarity stops would be advertised ahead of time on Facebook. To allow the organizers to meet more drivers and because the groups do not have access to a permanent space, the solidarity stops are set up in a different place each time.//

China Casts Itself as Ally to Workers in Battle With Big Tech

// #Meituan, for example, offered to facilitate #tradeunions as part of a broad package of behavioral remedies related to regulatory breaches that would offer new avenues for government officials to exert influence on the company, according to the person familiar with Meituan’s plan.

Aidan Chau, a researcher at the Hong Kong-based nongovernmental organization China Labour Bulletin, said #Beijing’s focus on regulating #algorithms and its push for redistribution are theoretical wins for Chinese workers. But it wasn’t clear how the tech companies planned to implement some of the government’s guidelines. And as independent #contractors, many #gigworkers fall outside the new trade #unions’ legal remit, Mr. Chau said.//

在 #工伤保险 方面,美团 在8月30号对媒体表示,将在“工作基础较好的省市先行”,进行“骑手职业伤害保障试点”。该职业伤害保障将会类似于工伤保险,不过,试点计划仍然没有详细内容。《指导意见》在厘清劳动关系方面迈出了一小步,但暂时未见各公司有进一步的规章出台。

“积极吸纳新就业形态劳动者加入 #工会”是《指导意见》中的要求,两个月来,美团(上海)工会、#京东 集团工会相继成立,#饿了么 也在多个城市设立工会,#滴滴 集团(北京)召开第一次工会会员代表大会……组建工会仅是第一步,工会是否能够代表工人谈判并制定新的行业劳动标准,仍有待观察。

“Working for an organization that supports the workers’ movement in #China can sometimes feel a bit like #GroundhogDay. It is a never-ending struggle. Setbacks are inevitable, so it is important to celebrate the small victories achieved along the way and give hope to those who will follow you.” In Geoffrey's outgoing piece, he reflects on those who have taken a stand in the workplace.

"As I retire, I am heartened by the fact that there are still many dedicated people from China and around the world who want to continue the struggle. Add Oil!"

Vietnam’s factory workers struggle just to get by under hard lockdown

With the spike in Covid-19 cases in #Vietnam, provincial governments tried to keep their #manufacturing bases running through factory "bubbles" that house and feed workers inside the facility. Mike Tatarski writes for CLB, interviewing workers on how they are faring.

Smaller factories simply closed, while larger facilities set up tents and cots in spare spaces. To maintain some #socialdistancing, the workforce was pared down and many were sent home. For those still working, hygiene in the facilities is a problem. For those workers sent home, they were paid VND 170k (US$7) per day for two weeks, followed by just VND 20k (

【忽視 #技能投資 的中國工業,只有三成農民工接受過技能培訓、5.9%具有專業證書?】

中國「 #世界工廠 」模式雖取得了令人矚目的增長奇蹟,但企業和政府長期都忽視對工人的技能投資。一份清華大學和復旦大學的報告顯示,新生代農民工只有近三分之一接受過相關培訓,僅有5.9%具有專業技術證書,且大多數人都是通過非正式的「 #拜師傅 」習得。

究其原因,學生工和農民工長期缺乏保障,處於過度剝削之下,對企業沒有歸屬感,沒有意願參與技能培訓;而他們頻繁離開和更換工廠,其高流動性更讓企業不願投資技能培訓,造成惡性循環…

"Cheng Mingquan, the deputy director of Jiang'an County Safety Supervision Bureau, told the Chinese media that Hengda had begun construction of the plant in 2016 without ensuring the necessary safety procedures and facilities were in place. The local government ordered construction to stop and imposed administrative penalties, he said. In May 2018, the workshop began a “commissioning phase” of production despite the fact that it had not yet passed fire inspection and the local authorities had yet to approve its safety design plan (安全设施设计), Cheng added. The Jiang'an Industrial Park Management Committee also reported some problems at the facility but claimed it had no power to enforce laws and safety regulations."
