Refusal of work

Refusal of work

Refusal of work is a concept that has been advocated at various times by many social activist groups, mostly located on the libertarian left. The concept is associated with Marxism - and especially the Marxism of the Italian workerist/autonomist tradition (e.g. Toni Negri, Mario Tronti, Bifo) and the French ultra-left (e.g. Echanges et Mouvement) - and with anarchism (especially Bob Black).

Refusal of work does not consist merely of absenteeism, but can also involve sleeping or substance abuse on the job, a lack of productivity, use of work time and workplace resources for personal projects and interest, theft from one's employer, and sabotage at the workplace.
