On the side of the Community of Communes, the fire had been smoldering for a long time and, after several unheeded strike notices, two new ones, from the FA union on the one hand, and from the CGT on the other hand, were filed for a duration of ‘one month from the 1er may. After the consultation meeting on Tuesday May 7, FA lifted its notice, but the CGT maintained it.

This Thursday, May 16, from 6 a.m., the first strikers blocked the entrance to the technical services premises located in Martiloche, on the road to Périgueux, in Fumel. Around forty people, technical service employees (environment and roads), prevented any vehicle from entering or exiting. “Nothing goes in, nothing comes out. Only candidates who must validate their Caces (certificate of aptitude for safe driving) can enter,” specifies Kamel Sekkiou, CGT delegate for Lot-et-Garonne.

“He did it to divide us”

The main demands concern the refusal to pay the Purchasing Power Bonus (PPA) and the increase in the IFSE, an allowance linked to function and expertise. “Caminade said he refused it to everyone. He lied to us because he gave it to garbage truck drivers. He did it to divide us. Besides, they are over there, opposite,” says the delegate, pointing to a group of people gathered on the other side of the road.

On this specific point, management indicates that “this increase corresponds to the change in the status of drivers, who became ‘driver-crane operators’ during the change in collection, and that it had been in the pipeline for a long time.” As for the PPA, President Caminade indicates that “the elected officials, in agreement with the CGT, have chosen to increase the annual compensation supplement which is a lasting bonus, while the PPA is exceptional”.

The president continues by affirming that the budget for jobs has increased by one million euros at a constant workforce, in particular due to the increase in bonuses. Arguments which do not seem to convince the strikers, who assert: “We will block until they give up. »
