Baku. 24 November. REPORT.AZ/ French trade union CGT said on Friday it will call on its members to shut down operations at three of Total SA’s refineries in France on Monday afternoon if a final proposal to negotiate bonuses is rejected by management, Report informs citing Reuters.
Report informs citing Reuters Oil industry workers were on strike for a third day on Friday at four of France’s seven refineries and unions urged employees to step up blockades to force the plants to halt production.
“If our proposal is rejected, we will propose to striking workers the shutdown of Grandpuits, Normandy and Feyzin petrol production units at midday on Monday,” CGT spokesman Thierry Defresne said.
Support for continued action on Friday came after unions rejected on Thursday a 1.5 percent salary increase offer by oil industry federation UFIP, saying it was below the French inflation rate.
Initially the action was staged by the employees of oil facilities who demanded increase in wages, but later most employees joined the 'yellow vests'.
