Place Jean-Jaurès is far from being full at 10:30 a.m., the gathering time set by the local CGT Union of Martigues for the demonstration on 1er may. The rain is here. This might explain that. It is around 11 a.m. that the umbrellas and flags of political parties and trade union organizations finally begin to color the esplanade. The weather may not be good, but the challenges that punctuate daily life in the region are too important to skip Labor Day.

This first European petrochemical and industrial platform created between Lavéra and Fos is at the heart of a reconversion which can be a Source of jobs and emancipation for workers », begins the secretary of the communist section of Martigues Axel Samuel. By 2030, three major project leaders should set up in the western basins of the major maritime port of Marseille with the promise of creating 10,000 jobs. In parallel with this development, all processes in existing industries are being decarbonized by turning to green energies. A boon. On condition of integrating the workers “ which will generate strong added value » when thinking about “ new production mechanisms, new working modalities and conditions », Underlines the PCF manager. On condition, also, of making this transition “ with equivalent employees, which was not the case at Total La Mède in
2015
», points out the CGT union representative of the petrochemical platform, Fabien Cros.

For their part, the local unions take their share of responsibility to convey the needs of the population area to the governing bodies. Because beyond industrial installations, additional infrastructure is necessary for the proper development of the area. “ There is no industry without public service, there is no public service without industry », Recalls Julien Granato, general secretary of the Martigues local union.

A territorial opportunity

The union therefore carried out a “ ant work » to quantify and identify the shortcomings of the town’s public hospital. “ This field research revealed that 90 statutory positions at present to be able to ensure the long-term functioning of the establishment », specifies the CGT elected official. After a first meeting organized under the aegis of the sub-prefecture in the presence of the Regional Health Agency, a second meeting should be held in July to refine the resizing of the Rayettes hospital.

It is a real state plan that must be implemented, says Axel Samuel. This reindustrialization must be an opportunity for the territory. Local elected officials must fight so that these investments, which will be profits tomorrow, make it possible to develop social progress whether it concerns health, the development of housing or mobility. »
