The Cleaners Syndicate of the FAU
The cleaning sector is marked by precarious working conditions and pay.
For the Conflict at Biogen's plant at Luterbach we are working closely with our Partners IWW in the cleaners collective. We fight for the respect, security and perspective the workers deserve - and we fight together with the workers, not "in their place".
United with the struggling cleaners
For several months, the cleaners at Enzler have been organizing with the FAU (Free Workers Union) and the IWW (Industrial Workers of the World) in the Cleaning Collective to improve their working conditions: safety standards are not applied, schedules are not respected, they actually work on demand. These are just some of the grievances the workers are facing.
Resolution of Enzler Workers
Today, the cleaning company Enzler has resorted to another means of (grassroots) union busting: it has invited the social "partner" Unia and declared participation in the event to be mandatory. Inviting Unia, which has been absent since the beginning of the labor conflict, is supposed to push the conflict away from the struggling grassroots unions. But workers at Enzler had already passed a resolution before Unia, expressing their confidences to the FAU, IWW and the cleaning collective.
