The CGT du Cher is making its social comeback. After the Berruyère demonstration on July 14, the departmental union (UD) CGT returns to the charge on Thursday September 17 with five rallies and demonstrations as part of a national call for mobilization.
Sébastien Martineau, secretary of the UD, estimates that the hundred billion euros of the recovery plan will be paid “by the wage earners, because it is not free money”. But above all, what worries him are the layoffs looming in the Cher.
“The influx of public money does not prevent layoffs at Sipem in Vierzon, the closure of the Comatelec plant in Saint-Florent and Rosières in Lunery. Public money is used to finance layoffs and strengthen cash flow and profits. “
The demonstrations of tomorrow will not be unitary. Only the CGT union called for a demonstration, even if other unions could join it. Apart from layoffs, necessarily too many for Sébastien Martineau, another problem worries the departmental secretary: “Under what conditions will be hired the future employees since we no longer want open-ended contracts. “
Thursday’s call to strike will cause disruption in some school reception and restaurants in the department. Users of the Bourges Agglobus network are invited to take note of the service levels planned for this Thursday, September 17 (toll-free number: 0800.007.009). Also note, disruptions to be expected on the SNCF network from today, at 8 p.m., and until Saturday, September 19 at 8 a.m.
