The filter dams were set up since this morning …
Hauliers maintain pressure in Rennes. Since Thursday morning, a barrage filter has been installed in both directions on the RN 24 on the Route to Lorient. This results in significant delays to the west of Rennes and on the ring road.

Unions received by the Minister on Thursday
Since Monday, lorry drivers rallied to the call of the CGT and FO unions to express their concern about the reform of the Labour Code. On Monday, they had tried to block the oil depot of Vern-sur-Seiche, south of Rennes. The security forces intervened and had managed to avoid blocking the site.
The next day the lorry drivers had continued their protest by blocking the main bus depot, located plain Baud, causing paralysis to bus traffic between 5 pm and 9 pm in the Breton capital.
