Striking oil workers speak out against anti-worker French labor law

29 May 2016

Over the weekend, WSWS reporters visited the Total refinery in Grandpuits, which is on strike to protest the Socialist Party government’s anti-worker labor law. The law allows companies to demand increased working hours and makes it easier to cut wages, fire workers, and impose mass sackings.

Grandpuits, which treats 16 million liters of petroleum per day and employs nearly 500 workers, supplies the gas stations of the Paris area and neighboring regions. Grandpuits workers just voted on Friday to continue the strike against the labor law for another week, together with most refineries across France.
