“We can no longer continue like this”: national strike of truck drivers this Monday to demand salary increases – Archyde

-

Truck drivers, coach drivers, freight or fund carriers, ambulance drivers, movers, logistics employees such as at Amazon… This Monday from 3 a.m., the 790,000 employees of the road transport branch are called upon to block industrial areas throughout France.Faced with soaring inflation, all the unions – CFDT, CGT, FO, CFTC, CGC – are launching this day of action to demand single or even double-digit wage increases in a sector where the grids struggle to reach the level of the minimum wage (1302.64 euros net). “It is a warning shot that we want to send to employers, but also to the government and to public opinion. We were considered essential employees during the Covid, but today we are the forgotten ones, and it cracks. If this day of action is not enough, we will enter the hard in October”, warns Patrick Blaise of the FGTE Route CFDT, the first trade union in the profession. A good twenty large sites should very quickly be blocked at dawn, according to the feedback collected this weekend by the unions. Others could be targeted at the last minute. “All regions will be affected but we don’t want to bother motorists”, still assures the leader of the CFDT truckers, who counts on more than 6,000 union members to block the identified areas and carry out towing operations. Pell-mix, Paris, Marseille, Miramas, Bordeaux, Toulouse, Dunkirk, Rennes, Morlaix, Le Mans, Nantes, Lille, Nancy, Metz, Mulhouse, Lyon… At the very least, it’s all of France that will be covered. increases already engulfed by inflation The agreement resulting from the mandatory annual negotiations (NAO) last February – which does not cover all professions, such as logistics or transport of funds – certainly provides for a 5% increase in the remuneration of conventional grids , to catch up with the level of the minimum wage, and an additional increase of 1% on May 1, 2022. Increases already swallowed up by soaring prices (+ 5.5% in 2022 according to INSEE forecasts) and deemed to be clearly insufficient , hammer the representatives of the employees – for the most part paid at minimum wage -, who denounce the policy of very small wage steps of the employers and demand the resumption of discussions. “We cannot continue like this, to be paid with a slingshot, for most t at the minimum wage, with the exception of long-haul truck drivers who are just above! storm Patrice Clos, from the FO transport union. “It is the perverse effect of the Fillon reductions on low wages, which turn against employees. In the NAO, employers refuse to grant increases worthy of the name to avoid losing these exemptions! “He continues. “We are short of 80,000 employees, including 16,000 bus drivers and 8,000 school drivers at the start of the school year! points out Patrick Blaise again. For him, it is the result of poor management by employers and public authorities. “By dint of pulling wages down and doing the least social, the profession no longer attracts. “Still no Minister of TransportFaced with this threat of social conflagration, Matignon nevertheless refutes any concern. “Discussions between employers and employees must be held, in which the State is not directly involved”, says one in the entourage of Elisabeth Borne. And to recall that important measures to support the sector have already been taken: aid of 400 million euros to the sector, rebate of 15 cents/litre at the pump which benefits professionals… The threat that is looming is however the beast black of all governments. Prime Minister Élisabeth Borne is well placed to know: in 2017, she was called upon to put out the social fire that was smoldering in road transport, over overtime pay. At the time, she was Minister of Transport. Today, no official minister is in charge of this portfolio! Which will pose a problem this Tuesday, June 28, when a Council of European Ministers of Transport is being held in Lyon (Rhône). “It is the Minister in charge of Territorial Communities, Christophe Béchu, who will be responsible for representing it (France),” rectifies Matignon. Transport unions have also planned to invite themselves. “We call on the truckers but also the railway workers to gather at 1 p.m. near the station. There will also be people, ”warns Fabrice Michaud of the CGT truckers’ union.
