In Paris, “finally, there are a few people”
Like the whole event, Daniel Bertone, secretary general of the CGT at Aéroports de Paris (ADP), waited more than an hour on Quai Branly, near the Invalides, before the procession set off. “It’s to make believe that there are more people”, jokes the trade unionist. Despite the smile on his lips, he said to himself “a little disappointed with the slightest mobilization. Especially after the success of the May 1 demonstration.. He understands the weariness of those absent during the day: “strikes are expensive” so people “strike by delegation”.
PARIS, JUNE 6.
A few steps away, just behind the CGT balloon, Laurent Dahyot, secretary general of CGT Air France, is not unhappy with the extent of the mobilization. “We were a little scared. But finally there are a few people. People didn’t give up.”, is satisfied the trade union leader of the airline company. On the other hand, this time again, pilots, hostesses and stewards are conspicuous by their absence. “They managed to negotiate on their side the maintenance of their pension plan”, quips Mr. Dahyot. According to the latter, at Air France now, there are flight attendants, pilots and stewardesses, and there are ground staff”.
In the future, Mr. Bertone imagines the rise in power “other claims”. According to him, there will be “a whole reflection around the notion of work. Especially with the advent of digital and data” in the professional sphere. It is “a topic that will grow” and who will demand “a social dialogue” quality.
