If you have a flight departing from a Paris airport this Friday and Saturday, you may need to be patient.
The unions of Aéroports de Paris (ADP), which notably includes the Roissy (Val-d'Oise) and Orly (Val-de-Marne) platforms, have filed a strike notice.
Although officers can be assigned, disruption is to be expected.
“We expect 400 or 500 demonstrators at Roissy, a few hundred at Orly.
For the moment, it is at least a quarter of the workforce of Roissy who are said to be on strike, ”observes Daniel Bertone, secretary general of CGT.
At the heart of the anger: the work contract adaptation plan (PACT) which should lead to wage cuts for 5,200 airport employees.
In the difficult economic context of the Covid, the plan provides for eliminating or modifying certain bonuses and allowances: bonuses for dirty work or good behavior, increased night hours, mileage or telephone allowances, etc. exposes to a dismissal by the means of a plan of safeguard of employment (PSE).
"Working more to earn less is not acceptable"
Another strike, from July 1 to 5, had already been announced. “But the employees did not want to wait so long before taking action,” point out all the unions. The amendment to their employment contract should arrive by post in the coming days.
“Working more to earn less is not acceptable, relays Véronique Pigueron, CFE-CGC, the majority union at ADP. The collective contractual termination already signed provides for the departure of 1,150 people, 700 of whom will not be replaced. However, not all activity is correlated with traffic, far from it. It will do more work for those who remain. "" People do not understand that their wages are cut when ADP invests 1.2 billion in airports abroad, adds Laurent Garssine, of Unsa-Sapap. Everyone is mobilized because everyone is affected by the decreases. "
Véronique Pigueron points to another danger: “1,600 people were candidates at the start. If a very large number of employees refuse to sign the Pact, the planes no longer take off because we are in specific jobs, which sometimes require six months of training. »100% of firefighters or administrative sectors would be declared strikers. “When Augustin de Romanet
(Editor's note, the CEO of the Aéroports de Paris group on France 5 on Wednesday evening
) says that this will mean two minutes lost for passengers, he is wrong, warns Laurent Garssine. All operational services are affected and this is only the beginning of the fight. "
A general assembly of employees is scheduled for Friday after the event which will link terminal T2 to ADP headquarters at Roissy Charles de Gaulle. The unions warn. If management refuses to review its copy, further strike notices could be filed in the coming days.
