The metropolis has summoned the FO union, the majority in the city of Marseille, in order to request the lifting of the blockages of transfer centers and garages where dump trucks are stored, which "

prevent non-strikers from working freely

".

The decision will be made "

soon

", the court said.

These illegal blockages led by hooded individuals are today at the origin of the accumulation of nearly 3,500 tonnes of household waste on the public highway

”, pleaded the lawyer for the metropolis, Maitre Henri-Pierre Vignon. , pointing to a “

seriously degraded health situation

”.

It would take five weeks of work to catch up with the situation

,” added the lawyer, arguing that “

every day that passes, 800 tons

” of waste accumulate in the streets.

“A no place to rule”

The representative of the FO union, Maitre Olivier Grimaldi, for his part asked the court to pronounce “

no place to rule

” on the grounds that the blockages are now lifted and that the judicial and non-administrative court would be competent in this case.

This strike movement

started from the base and not from FO”, hammered the lawyer.

FO believes that the metropolis has not respected certain provisions of a previous agreement concluded at the end of December with all the trade unions, after a month of strike, in particular concerning Sunday bonuses.

Patrick Rué, representative of the union in the city of Marseille, also explained Tuesday at a press conference that he wanted to "

harmonize

" the salaries of collection agents throughout the metropolis, which would require increasing those of Marseilles residents.

This new garbage collectors' strike is the third in less than four months in Marseille.
