The Poitevin site of the distribution company Adrexo has been on strike since the beginning of February over problems with working conditions and bonuses. Other sites in France are now joining the movement.
In Poitiers, 26 of the 31 employees of the Adrexo company have been on strike since the beginning of February. And no way out seems possible quickly.
The employees of this delivery company, whose head office is in Aix-en-Provence (Bouches-du-Rhône), denounce their working conditions. To find a solution, the labor inspectorate visited the warehouses to draw up an inventory. She then demanded the installation of ergonomic work tables to facilitate the sorting of parcels. But nothing was done, the employees had to make themselves more suitable tables with pallets and adhesive film.
The strikers are also asking for a meal bonus. The management had announced that it would be paid quickly, but according to the movement’s spokesman, Guillaume Chevreau, “nothing has been paid.”
The Poitevin management of the establishment does not have the hand to satisfy these claims, it is the headquarters of Aix-en-Provence which alone can do so. Result, the strike continues and the packages are not delivered “there are hundreds of packages in the warehouse waiting to be delivery“explains the director, Philippe Viroulet.
This Tuesday, striking employees will gather at the Place du Maréchal Leclerc in Poitiers with the CGT between 12:30 p.m. and 2 p.m. before starting a demonstration in the streets of the city.
Other Adrexo sites have also decided to go on strike in France, this is the case in Blois, Angers, Brest, Toulon and Saint-Étienne from Tuesday morning.
Management in Aix-en-Provence could not be reached on Monday.
