Strike at Roissy: after a technical bug, thousands of passengers left without their luggage


Half of the passengers would have left without their luggage, according to a union official. And some might be lost forever

The relief was short-lived for some travelers on Friday.

If they managed to take a flight from Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle, where some of the staff are on strike, they had another disappointment: their luggage did not travel with them.

According to BFMTV, a technical problem caused the blocking of thousands of pieces of luggage at the airport until the end of the day.

About half of the passengers would have left without their luggage.

Can they get them back?

“Honestly, it will be extremely complicated, replied Emmanuel Duchemin-Humbert, Force Ouvrière Aéroports de Paris representative, on the channel.

The loss of luggage yesterday is a technical breakdown which has not been corrected since there are no more maintainers.

You can't find staff at the price you want to pay people.

So there is a strike plus a breakdown.

Baggage, there is a lot that is lost ”.

Dozens of flights were canceled on Saturday morning at Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle, the French airport most affected by a social conflict over wages and working conditions.

New notices next weekend

The situation should improve in the afternoon, although cancellations related to operational problems are still possible, according to the ADP spokesperson.

According to Daniel Bertone, secretary general of the CGT of Groupe ADP, new notices have also been submitted for next weekend which will mark the start of the summer school holidays and traditionally sees a peak in attendance.

Employees are demanding a 6% revaluation with retroactive effect from January 1 to compensate for inflation.

Management proposed 4% on July 1, he said.
