"It's wrong": the garbage collectors on strike are not paid by the Paris City Hall, argues Emmanuel Grégoire


The first deputy mayor of Paris thus rejects the accusations made by the Minister of Public Service Stanislas Guérini.

The strike of Parisian garbage collectors continues to agitate the political world.

10,000 tons of waste still litter the Parisian sidewalks this Friday.

The displayed support of the mayor of Paris to the opponents against the pension reform raises questions as to a possible "

special treatment

" which the garbage collectors on strike will benefit from on their pay slips.

Doubts to which the first deputy Emmanuel Grégoire wanted to cut short, this morning, on BFMTV.

To the question “

Is it true that the town hall of Paris continues to pay the garbage collectors on strike?

“Emmanuel Grégoire disagreed.

The town hall is not continuing to pay the garbage collectors on strike,”

he declared, before adding: “

we are not inciting anyone to strike, it is a right of employees.

“As for the agents who do not strike, “

they are at work and spend their nights cleaning the streets

”, assures the elected official.

Anne Hidalgo's first deputy denounces a "

voluntarily and cynically introduced confusion



by "

a few members of the government



to "

make believe that we support the strike on the operational level


It is difficult not to detect in this intervention a tackle addressed to the Minister of Public Service Stanislas Guerini.

Invited to the morning of Radio J on Thursday, he castigated "

the variable geometry strike notices

" from the Mayor of Paris.

He describes the municipality's credo as follows: “

You are on strike against the pension reform, you will not have more than two days of salary deductions every month, including if you go on strike for 14 or 15 days in the month;

if you go on strike for a reason other than pension reform, this rule does not apply.


As revealed by “Le Parisien”, Stanislas Guérini asked the prefect of the Ile-de-France region for a legality check on the method of withholding strike days that the Paris City Hall would consider applying.


I have very serious doubts about the legitimacy of this device

", had justified Stanislas Guérini last Friday on France 2.

In question, according to

Le Parisien

, an email from the human resources department of the town hall of Paris sent to all the administrative services of the City.

The municipal executive is committed

, it would be written,

that there will be no more than two strike days linked to the pension reform deducted from the pay of the striking agents each month.

It is therefore up to each department to spread the seizure of these strike days over several months of pay, once an agent has been on strike for more than two days in this capacity in a given month.

Still according to the daily, only the mobilization against the pension reform would benefit from this development.

Contacted, the Paris City Hall did not respond to requests from Le



As a reminder, this spreading is legal with regard to the rules incumbent on the agents of the territorial public service, to which the municipal garbage collectors fall.

If the absence of service does give rise to a salary deduction proportional to the duration of the strike, "

no text imposes that the deduction be made on the remuneration of the month during which the strike took place

" indicates the site official of the Ministry of the Interior.

The fact of remunerating the striking employees for their days of strike would, on the other hand, be derogatory to the law.
