On strike since December 15 for the demonstrator – among others – against the end of the finished party – a system that allows them to return home once the work is finished -, the garbage collectors have finally drawn an end to this social achievement. They are now asking for compensation and taking into account the arduous nature of their work.
“They offered us nine days of subjection (compensation for hardship, Editor’s note) and not 11 as Mr. Terrail-Novès was able to say in the press (to our colleagues from France Bleu Occitanie NDLR). We are still at 34, which corresponds to a hardship of 15% and 240 hours, or around 1 hour less work per day, ”explains Benoît Fontanilles, general secretary of the autonomous union and spokesperson for the inter-union. These 34 days of compensation corresponding to what their Marseille garbage collectors obtained in exchange for the end of the game.
The conflict is likely to harden a little more while the strike is already well attended. The inter-union evoked in its last days the figure of 90% of strikers while Vincent Terrail-Novès, vice-president of Toulouse metropolis in charge of cleanliness and waste, advanced the figure of 50%. Be that as it may, the strikers at this time are not refraining from any form of action: blocking waste management sites and filing orders in front of official buildings cannot be ruled out.
Contacted, Toulouse Métropole did not follow up.
