Total reaches pay deal with two French unions

Total’s (FP.PA) French refining operations have reached a pay rise deal with two unions, isolating the hardline CGT union, the company and a union official told Reuters on Monday. The CGT, which represents around a quarter of the refining workers at Total’s French refineries, remained on strike for a fourth day. The deal is applicable for 19,000 workers,” said Francois Pelegrina, a coordinator at the CFDT union at Total. The endorsement of two unions was needed for a deal to go through and workers at one of Total’s five French refineries – the 231,000-bpd Donges plant – voted to end their strike after news of the CFDT deal.
