It takes “all measures necessary for the maintenance of syndical action in the field of economic struggle.”
The Bourses du Travail met an important want in the syndical life of France.
The declaration of toleration gave free scope to the workingmen to form their syndical chambers.
The main function of the syndical chamber was to promote the organization of co-operative societies.
What the delegates demanded was the right to organize and to form “syndical chambers”.
Also the journals of the Commune and the delegates of the syndical Chambers in vain summoned the electors to the ballot-box.
