The deaths of the Covid-19 of a Carrefour employee in Saint-Denis (Seine-Saint-Denis) and of a temporary worker from Manpower on mission at Fedex in Roissy (Val-d'Oise), as well as a confirmed case of an employee of Amazon in Saran near Orleans on Friday aroused the anger of the unions, which demand better protections.
Carrefour management confirmed the death of a 52-year-old employee at Carrefour de Saint-Denis. "It is an absolute drama, our thoughts are with his family and loved ones. The management of the hypermarket has set up a psychological unit for its colleagues, ”said the brand.

It also asks the government to impose on large retailers "to only open the shelves of essential products, to limit the opening hours and to close on Sundays".
The CGT Interim meanwhile announced the death of a temporary worker on mission at the Fedex hub in Roissy, Tuesday, and called for "the cessation of all missions not meeting the essential needs of the population", the right of withdrawal and access to partial activity measures, "whatever the duration of their assignment contract, as long as the working conditions present serious dangers of contamination".

Close Amazon warehouses
At Amazon, the first union of the group in France, SUD, held a press conference after the announcement Tuesday of a case confirmed by a test of Covid-19 at the warehouse in Saran, near Orleans. The employee worked in the reception service of trucks, according to the Republic of the Center.
According to Laurent Degousée, delegate of SUD Commerce et Services, 39 people from the Saran employee's team tested positive for Covid-19 have been placed in confinement since Tuesday but "at least 90 people have been in contact" with him. According to group management, another case has been confirmed in Brétigny-sur-Orge (Essonne).
Like the CGT and the CFDT, SUD is calling for the closure of the group's French warehouses, which according to the unions carry very few priority products (such as hygiene products) and continue to deal with leisure items (games, comics , DVD, etc.), despite the group's announcement on March 21 that it will no longer take orders for "lower priority" products in France and Italy.
