Montauban: employees of a logistics base on strike for 38 days

They denounce hellish rates and very low wages. Since December 16, Stef employees have been on strike in Montauban (Tarn-et-Garonne). Despite this long mobilization, they feel they are not being heard. “We have always been there, we have always worked, we were present. They even had volunteers to do the Sundays, and in return there is nothing ”, testifies Amel Chaabi, employee for four years.

100 euros per month more

The employees of the company are demanding an increase of 100 euros in their salary, which today does not exceed 1,200 euros per month, but also an improvement in their working conditions. Each day, an employee can transport up to eight tonnes of merchandise, and stacking pallets in the warehouse raises concerns about accidents. Management should take a step towards employees ”We will do everything we can to get the situation back to normal ”, says Céline Audibert, spokesperson for the Stef group. To date, one in three employees is on strike.
