My name is Gioele and I am not a Filcams shop steward, even if I am a member of the trade union, because in my workplace it is forbidden to join a union, or else you will be fired. Salaries are always “faulty” and if I didn’t self train myself I wouldn’t know how to explain all those acronyms to my colleagues. Companies will never pay for training, and workers will never go to a trade union, if there is even remotely the risk of being fired. In addition to all this, there is often a tense and unpleasant atmosphere. We are not free to organize our free time and we receive warning letters even if for a single day we did not shave.
