Olympic flame, strike lifted for Metz municipal police officers

The UNSA Territorials union organization in Metz had filed a strike notice for June 27, the day the Olympic flame passed through. It was lifted after a meeting with the town hall.

The strike announced by the UNSA Territorialaux union in Metz for June 27, the day the Flame passes through this Moselle town, will not take place. It was lifted after a meeting with the town hall on Monday June 24.

The union demanded better pay. “We are asking for an exceptional bonus in the amount of 1,500 euros for the period of July and Augustt”, explained Eric Egert, municipal police officer and general secretary of the UNSA Territorials union, on June 12. “It is out of the question that during the Olympic Games, municipal police officers will make up for the lack of state law enforcement officers.

In principle, they will take 180 city agents for the Olympics. This means that we will carry out the sovereign missions of the national police.

Hervé Niel, the deputy in charge of security in the city of Metz, explains that Monday’s meeting provided an opportunity to discuss: “we had a discussion with the territorial UNSA. They understood that their requests were not necessarily legitimate, in particular the bonus of 1,500 euros.

There will be no more work than other years during this summer period. We have had confirmation from the prefect that there will be no fewer national police officers. The leave of municipal police officers was not called into question. There was therefore no objective reason for these demands.

The other police unions (CGT police, CFDT police, SAFPT) were against this notice. I will receive them in the coming days to continue the discussion started before this notice. The door to my office is always open for social dialogue.

The strike notice has been lifted. The union announces that it will remain vigilant and will not hesitate to renew it if the dialogue initiated with the town hall is unsuccessful.

The Olympic flame will depart from Meisenthal to arrive in Metz, the stage city, on Thursday June 27.
