Nov 25, 2021

In Martinique, the inter-union at the origin of the general strike launched on Monday is trying to calm the situation. The inter-union “Met and analyzed the situation, and taking into account (…) from what we have seen throughout this day, (…) the intersyndicale decided this evening to lift the roadblocks ”, announced Bertrand Cambusy, secretary general of the Central Syndicate of Martinican Workers, on the night of Tuesday 23 to Wednesday 24 November on Martinique La 1ère.

Union representatives say they have taken this decision to avoid the risk of conflagration, as in Guadeloupe, where violence, of a magnitude greater than that of Martinique, continued on Tuesday. The inter-union appeal does not guarantee that all roadblocks will be lifted quickly, some of them being manned by non-union people.
