A spectacular foray into the offices of the CFDT on Friday January 17 crystallized the division of opponents of pension reform.
Despite the opposition of the employees, there were dozens of RATP and SNCF strikers who entered the CFDT premises by surprise. On Friday January 17, CGT and SUD-Rail employees and union representatives entered the building in the presence of the police. An inadmissible intrusion for Laurent Berger. “They verbally and physically assaulted CFDT employees”, wrote the union leader on Twitter.
“The strike belongs to the strikers”
For their part, the strikers deny any violence and claim the right to speak directly to Laurent Berger. “The strike belongs to the strikers, it does not belong to any trade union confederation, and even less to a trade union bureaucrat like Laurent Berger, who is more used to the cozy living rooms of Matignon and the Elysee than to pickets”, says Anasse Kazib, SUD-Rail union representative. The CFDT announced that it will file a complaint on Monday, January 20.
