Several unions disillusioned with classic union unions came together in a new entity called Syndibasa.

In addition to this, you will need to know more about it.

The world of trade unionism is still divided a little. Several "grassroots" unions in French-speaking and German-speaking Switzerland announced on Thursday the creation of a new alliance called Syndibasa. It intends to be an “alternative to institutional labor peace unionism”, barely concealed from Unia or the Swiss Trade Union Union (USS), which it deems too close to parties and institutions, or even to the patronage, and too quick to compromise. “This is done to the detriment of the health and safety of workers,” says Johnny Rumpf, of the Bernese union FAU, for example. Syndibasa therefore advocates a union movement to impose its demands. "No more negotiating CCTs without mobilization and without building a balance of power", announce its members.

Syndibasa brings together SUD, the Autonomous Union of Postmen (SAP), the French-speaking Association of Electrical Installation Workers (ART-IE) and three German-speaking entities. The alliance is open to all collectives and activists "who share our practices and our objectives of struggle", they add.

Surprise, the Swiss Union Syndicate neither regrets nor welcomes this newcomer. However, it defends its mode of action, assuming "to use the full range of tools available, from confrontation to compromise, as long as it benefits our members, who pay us and whom we represent", explains Benoît Gaillard. , spokesperson for USS. He believes that the Union has proven itself, whether by bringing together tens of thousands of people for demonstrations, or during the recent crisis by making the Federal Council move on the extension of short-time work to more precarious workers. for example. As for the question of representing “the base of workers”, Benoît Gaillard replies that “the expression“ base union ”is a pleonasm, never one of our unions will sign an agreement without having consulted its members, therefore its base, no. more."

On the Unia side, they say they are discovering this new umbrella with interest. Any criticism of its mode of action does not seem to affect the union, which claims to have "proven time and again that it is a combative union and close to the base"
