Download e-book for kindle: L'insubordination ouvrière dans les années 68: Essai by Vigna Xavier

By Vigna Xavier

La mémoire de sixty eight a largement valorisé le mouvement étudiant. Pourtant, sixty eight constitue également le plus puissant mouvement de grèves ouvrières que l. a. France a connu, et qui ouvre ensuite une part décennale de contestation dans les usines. C’est cette séquence d’insubordination ouvrière que Xavier Vigna retrace dans une étude historique pionnière qui s’appuie sur des files inédites. En croisant tracts, rapports de police et movies militants, ce livre examine d’abord l’événement que constituent les grèves de mai-juin 1968, bien au-delà de l. a. seule scène parisienne souvent réduite à los angeles « forteresse de Billancourt », et en montre le caractère inaugural. Dès lors, l’insubordination perdure et se traduit par de multiples illégalités. l. a. parole ouvrière qui l. a. nourrit conteste l’ensemble de l’organisation du travail. Relayée selon des modalités complexes par les agencies syndicales et les groupes d’extrême-gauche, cette insubordination échoue pourtant face à l. a. crise économique. Ainsi, ces années sixty eight constituent également une séquence ouvrière, dont cet essai d’histoire politique des usines entend restituer l’ampleur. Livre d’histoire par conséquent à rebours des discours convenus sur « Mai sixty eight », et d’une histoire ouvrière qui se confronte à los angeles sociologie du travail d’alors, il renouvelle largement notre connaissance d’une période ardente et cruciale, celle des années 68.
