Luxury brand Louis Vuitton is facing union discontent.

The CGT and the CFDT are calling for a strike on Thursday to protest against the annualization of employees' working hours, according to information published by the newspaper

Le Monde


Five of the 18 factories of the luxury brand in Asnières (Hauts-de-Seine), Saint-Donat-sur-l'Herbasse (Drôme), Sarras (Ardèche), Condé (Indre) and Issoudun (Indre) are concerned.

The main subsidiary of the LVMH group, is considering a new working time agreement that would reduce overtime.

14 euros per hour

Dissatisfied with the management's proposals, union officials are asking for a salary increase and specifying that an employee with 15 years of seniority only receives 14 euros per hour.

With our colleagues, they also denounce the “pressure” and the “hellish pace” that management imposes on employees.

For its part, management says that the agreement would increase working time from 35 to 33 hours with, as a bonus, a monthly increase of 150 euros.

Louis Vuitton specifies to

Le Monde

that the company also conducts "an advantageous remuneration policy which allows its employees in the workshops to be paid an average of 18 months' salary per year".

The sign specifies that the negotiations are still in progress.
