SOCIAL STRUGGLE: After the third day of mobilisation on Tuesday against the pension reform project carried by the government, the CGT announces a renewal of the strike in the refineries at TotalEnergies
TotalEnergies strikers renewed the movement on Wednesday morning against the government’s pension reform project in most of the group’s refineries, we learned from the CGT.
The union counted 100% of strikers among the morning shift operators at the Flandres fuel depot (North), near Dunkirk, 80% at the Donges refinery (Loire-Atlantique), 70% at the Feyzin refinery (Rhône ) and 56% at the Normandy refinery.
Total records the biggest profit in its history
Management estimated for its part that 46% of its operators were on strike this morning, according to an average established for all of its refineries.
The movement is scheduled to last two days, the national day of mobilization on Tuesday and this Wednesday, the day of publication of the results of the group which announced the best profit in its history: 20.5 billion dollars for the year 2022.
The CGT had initially considered stopping the refineries and therefore the production of fuels, but the employees were not ready for it and wanted to first “test” themselves on a renewable strike, before possibly hardening the movement.
