Total workers extend strike at three French refineries: union

A strike at Total’s (FP.PA) La Mede, Gonfreville and Feyzin refineries entered its fifth day on Tuesday, with workers at the hardline CGT/FO-dominated plants sticking with demands for bigger annual pay rises, a CGT union official said. Workers at the Donges plant near Nantes voted on Monday to pull out of the strike after the moderate CFDT and CGC unions signed a pay rise deal with management, isolating the CGT union, which represents around a quarter of Total’s refining workers. “We are not ready to break the movement and we still believe deals should be negotiated for all Total refinery workers,” he said.
