They demand "the immediate organization of a crisis meeting". While the port of Marseille has been blocked for several days, due to the mobilization against pension reform but also more local social conflicts, Upe 13, the association which brings together a large part of the bosses Bouches-du-Rhône, request government intervention.
"The state must quickly help businesses," said UPE 13 in a press release sent to 20 Minutes this Friday. "Many companies are idling, some are even at a standstill because they are deprived of their working tools, raw materials or the capacity to transport their production," says UPE 13. It is essential that they can be quickly supported. "
The bosses of the department of Bouches-du-Rhône demand among other things the priority processing of requests for partial unemployment as well as measures of reduction of charges.
