Not Just A Matter of Saving Our Skins / Utopia and IG Metal (81 min) 2007 (Germany) English subtitles.
By Holger Wegemann
In May 2005, the Bosch-Siemens workers in Berlin who produce Siemens household appliances were threatened with the closure of their factory and the loss of 600 jobs. The company claimed that the location was too expensive and technically out of date. The company demanded that 600 workers transferred and take massive cuts in salaries and benefits. The workers faced a union that was organizing a deal which was unacceptable to the majority, and they were accused by the media of being “utopian.” This film shows the story of their struggle both personally and politically.
