"Blackmail at work". This was denounced Tuesday in Toulouse a hundred employees of Derichebourg, an aeronautical subcontractor, in particular Airbus. With the coronavirus crisis, this sector was hit hard and saw a huge drop in activity.

According to the demonstrators, “the management announced on May 6 that it envisaged a PSE (plan of safeguarding of employment), with 700 redundancies. And before that, an APC (collective performance agreement) which suppresses social benefits, "said Tuesday Boris Escaich, of the UNSA union.

The CPA consists of making efforts, often on wages and achievements, and thus reducing the number of job cuts.

13th month and bonuses

“The concern is enormous, and anger is mounting, the Derichebourg group has 2.7 billion in turnover, we don't understand. Especially since a plan to help aeronautics must be announced soon by the government, ”continues the unionist.
