The strike continues in the refineries of TotalEnergies

The employees of TotalEnergies renewed, Monday, the strike in certain refineries and depots of the oil group, for lack of agreement with the General Confederation of Labor (CGT) on wage increases.

“The strike is renewed on the sites of Normandy, Donges, La Mède, Feyzin and Flanders, despite the requisitions”, indicated to the press, Eric Sellini, CGT coordinator for TotalEnergies, bringing the total of the sites on strike to three. refineries (out of seven) and five large depots (out of around 200).

While the strike drastically increased prices at the pump, French Prime Minister Elisabeth Borne announced on Sunday the extension of the 30-cent rebate, assuring that TotalEnergies would also extend its 20-cent discount. State-funded aid was to drop to 10 cents from November 1.

In total, 30.1% of service stations experienced supply problems on Sunday evening for at least one fuel, against 27.3% on Saturday, according to the government.

The strike was lifted on Thursday and Friday at the only two refineries of Esso-ExxonMobil in France, the other group which was also on wage strike, after a wage agreement was reached between management and two majority unions, but not with the CGT.

In the wake of the current social movement, the CGT Cheminots called for a strike on October 18 to demand a wage increase.
