Entdinglichung

… alle Verhältnisse umzuwerfen, in denen der Mensch ein erniedrigtes, ein geknechtetes, ein verlassenes, ein verächtliches Wesen ist … (Marx)

1.) Mehr als 15 Jahre lang hat die Firma The Consulting Association (TCA) in Droitwich, Worcestershire für die britischen Bauunternehmen eine schwarze Liste mit Eintragungen zu 3.200 BauarbeiterInnen erstellt, verwaltet und an Baufirmen wie Taylor Woodrow, Laing O’Rourke und Balfour Beatty weiter gereicht:

„Data included information concerning personal relationships, trade union activity and employment history, it added.

Comments included „lazy and a trouble stirrer“, „Ex shop steward. Definite problems. No Go“ and „Communist Party“.

Employers paid £3,000 as an annual fee, and £2.20 for individual details, the ICO said.

Alan Ritchie, general secretary of building workers union Ucatt, said: „Take one of the issues that we have in the construction industry: we have just under two people killed every week through bad health and safety practices and if a whistleblower then raises these issues, then obviously he has found his name on this list.“

2.) Was tun bei Entlassungen? … Den Betrieb besetzen, so geschehen bei der Verpackungsfirma Prisme Packaging in Dundee/Schottland:

„In an echo of the Upper Clyde Shipbuilders‘ occupation in 1971, 12 employees staged a sit-in protest after losing their jobs – by locking themselves behind the gates of a cardboard box manufacturing company in Dundee.

The five men and seven women – all non-union members – had been told the company, Prisme Packaging, has no money with which to fund their redundancy payments. They have vowed to continue their occupation until they receive statutory redundancy money.

One of the protesters said: „We want to make other employers think twice before they make people like us redundant.

„If 12 of us can do it then anybody can, and we will hold out for as long as it takes.“
