Will the Toulouse garbage collectors’ strike end? Or, on the contrary, will the movement harden? We should know more at the end of the meeting scheduled between the garbage collectors and Toulouse Métropole this Wednesday, January 5 at 2 p.m. LThe movement entered the third week and garbage is piling up in some neighborhoods.
A block on the number of days to compensate for the “finished job” and the arduousness
The garbage collectors have validated the end of the “finished party” which allows them to return home once their tour is over. But they ask for 34 days of compensation per year. According to the unions, Toulouse Métropole would only offer them two. The ball is therefore in the court of elected officials for Nicolas Refutin, secretary of the Force Ouvrière union for Toulouse Métropole agents: “With the end of ‘finished-gone’, working time will increase by about two hours per day and by garbage collector. In return, we are asking for a sufficiently strong right to leave to make up for this increase in daily working time. Our colleagues from the “Allô Toulouse” telephone platform were entitled to recognition of the arduousness up to four days of leave per year. For jobs related to the municipal police, it is up to eleven days. _Garbage collectors work every day, whatever the weather or the sanitary context_. They start at 5 am, work at night, carry heavy loads and are permanently on the public road at times when it can be dangerous. These are data that allow us to judge the arduous nature of the job. “
