After a standoff between the CFDT and the Aix-Marseille Provence Metropolis, there will finally be no metro in Marseille this Sunday, May 1, the day of the match at the velodrome between OM and Lyon (8:45 p.m.). Faced with pressure from the union, which asks to respect the May 1st holiday for traminos, the Metropolis gives up operating the metro between 6 p.m. and midnight and a half.
“There have already been football matches on May 1 in the past and it went very well (…) May 1 is Labor Day so it is normal for May 1 to be a holiday” – Patrick Rossi, CFDT
It is out of the question to have agents work on May 1 to Patrick Rossi of the CFDT : “people will make their arrangements! There have already been football matches in the past on May 1st and it went very well (…) May 1st is Labor Day and there are people who died for May 1st May so it is normal for May 1st to be a holiday. Whether it’s OM or another club, it’s a private company! So we were going to use the money for a private company and it is contradictory with what the public service should be. So there will be no metro, no bus, no tram“.
It will therefore be very complicated to reach the stadium and move around the Velodrome this Sunday.
