The CGT Federation of Mines and Energy (FNME-CGT) is considering targeted cuts against elected officials who will support pension reform, its secretary general, Sébastien Menesplier, told reporters on Monday (January 16th).
“We are going to see those who want the reform, who support it, those, we are going to take care of them. We are going to see them in their offices, we are going to talk to them, and then if by chance they do not understand the world of work, we will target them in the cuts that we will be able to organize, ”he said during a meeting at the headquarters of the CGT in Montreuil (Seine-Saint-Denis).
“We will be vigilant so as not to have collateral damage, the objective is not to alienate users,” he said.
The CGT-mines and energy presented Friday a “battle plan” to obtain the “pure and simple withdrawal” of the government project, which plans to push back the legal retirement age from 62 to 64 years old. This plan envisages a “recovery of the working tool in all its forms”: “electricity and gas restorations to the most precarious, free energies, targeted cuts, production cuts”…
The union calls for a renewable strike from January 19, with the ambition of “really disorganizing work or weighing on the economy” of companies, said Sébastien Menesplier.
The strike could also have an impact on the restarting of certain nuclear reactors: “If there are strikes, there will be no restarting of reactors. If there are no reactor restarts, there may be a lack of production capacity. (…) We will take full responsibility, as we did this fall. And we’ll wait for someone to pick us up. »
Several days of strike
The CGT-mines and energy wants to coordinate its efforts with other federations, and a meeting took place last week with the CGT-ports and docks, the Fnic (chemicals) and the railway workers. Another meeting is scheduled for Wednesday.
The CGT unions of the oil branch announced last week several days of strike, with a work stoppage of 24 hours on January 19, 48 hours on the 26th and 72 hours from February 6, an approach which “interests” the CGT-mines and energy.
