I was able to discuss for a few hours with the employees of MBF Aluminum, explains journalist Quentin Carudel, live from Saint-Claude for the 19/20 of France 3, Friday May 21. I can tell you that they are angry, they are tired, but they are well and truly determined to see it through. Indeed, the proof is here since they have installed gas cylinders and gasoline cans all over the factory.. ” Employees say they are ready to blow everything up if, next May 25 at the Dijon Commercial Court (Côte-d’Or), the judicial liquidation was pronounced.

300 jobs threatened

Another delegation was also present in Nevers (Nièvre) to challenge Emmanuel Macron, the President of the Republic. “Apparently, they would have met one of his advisers, at least here in front of the factory. Since March 31, the strike has continued. If, on Tuesday 25, the liquidation is pronounced, it would be almost 300 people who would find themselves unemployed.“, Concludes the journalist.
