A strong wind of discontent blew this Thursday, June 13 in front of the Châteaucoin college in Baugé. From 8 a.m. to early afternoon, approximately 50 people gathered in a strike action. Among them, a large part of the teaching staff and staff of the establishment but also parents and some students.

Through this action, they want to highlight “numerous dysfunctions” within the college since the arrival of their new head of establishment, in September 2023. In a press release, they mention “tensions that persist […] impacting working conditions, staff health, significantly degrading students’ learning conditions and complicating parental monitoring. »

Unsuccessful meetings

A situation that they were unable to calm down through dialogue according to Thibault Albert, professor of history and geography. “From September to January, we met the head of the establishment three times . Realizing that there was no possible development, we contacted management. »

Two interviews took place, in Angers, with the academic management, on February 20 and April 16. “We haven’t seen any improvement since, it’s even getting worse and worse. Last week was particularly complicated. »

“Restore a healthy work climate”

The decision was therefore taken by teachers and staff to launch a strike this Thursday, June 13. “We hope that this action will be heard and that it will encourage rapid and effective intervention from our hierarchy to restore a healthy working climate” , write teachers and staff in the press release, while inviting academic management and the rectorate to an on-site meeting.

This not having taken place, the strikers decided to renew their movement this Friday, June 14.

When contacted, the head of the establishment indicated that she did not wish to speak. For its part, the academic management did not respond to our requests Thursday evening.
