The CGT federation of Ports and Docks called on Friday January 20 for a 24-hour strike from next Thursday, January 26, without waiting for the date of the 31st decided by the trade union centers at the end of a first day of successful mobilization against pension reform.
The federation “calls on dockworkers and port workers to amplify the methods of action”. The CGT Ports and Docks therefore invites all employees to stop work next Thursday but also to eliminate “overtime and exceptional shifts from January 26”.
“For the terms of action for the week of January 30, the federation will once again bring together its authorities” and exchange with the other CGT federations in order to “continue raising the level of the fight”, indicates the CGT Ports and Docks in his statement.
She calls on the government to “withdraw its reform project” and to restore retirement at 60, or even 55 for difficult jobs.
The CGT Chemistry, Ports and Docks and Mines-Energy federations must coordinate their efforts and publish a joint statement on Monday, according to Emmanuel Lépine, secretary general of CGT-chemistry (FNIC). His federation has already called for a strike on January 26 for 48 hours and on February 6 for 72 hours.
Towards other oil tanker strikes in February
“For us, the renewable strike is already recorded in the energy sector”, indicated the federal secretary of the FNME-CGT Fabrice Coudour, while specifying that “the modalities will have to be decided with the strikers in the general assemblies”, which can give lead to “disparate” actions.
“For energy, through the renewable strike, we are calling for slightly stronger moments on the days of January 26 and 27 and February 6, 7 and 8,” he said, days which therefore correspond to those of the future strike movements announced by the oil companies, in particular in the refineries.
