The anxiety of the employees of General Electric (GE) in Belfort increases. The branch of "gas" could be cut from 800 to 1,000 positions on the 1900 it employs and on the 4000 present in total on the site. A social plan that fits within the context of a reduction of the costs of the american giant of 800 million euros on the european scale. "We thought we had of the new in April, then in may. And then nothing. Then one waits. You don't do it, wait. We stopped projecting," sighs on the subject an employee of the site, in the journal Le Parisien/Aujourd'hui en France . GE has launched since the beginning of the year several procedures to break the conventional collective, and plans to senior citizens. It is in this logic that, this Friday, according to the newspaper, a complaint against management should be filed by the intersyndicale (CFR - CGT-CGC-South) at the tribunal de grande instance, Belfort. The reason: obstacle to the functioning of the economic and social Committee (ESC).
"The main causes of ill-being at work are workload and significant pressure [...] not to mention the disorganization and complete the feeling to go right into the wall", have alerted the doctors of the work, cited by The new yorker .risks in terms of credibility
If this complaint were to succeed, the criminal consequences would not be particularly alarming for the company: "only" a fine of 7,500 euros, " explains Arnaud White Naulte, lawyer specialized in social law at cabinet NMCG. He says especially in terms of social climate, despite the small size of the fine, "it is always better to avoid such a conviction." Also, this complaint usually leads to an investigation by the prosecutor, resumed the lawyer, except in the case where "it is not considered credible". If such an investigation is open, then "elected officials of the CSE and officers (and/or holders of a power of attorney) can be heard by the judicial police officers". "If the public prosecutor considers the charges sufficient, it will return in hearing criminal cases", adds Me White Naulte, reminding us that this is the case for several months.
last Tuesday, between 350 and 500 workers were protesting to show their fear at the approach of the social plan. They have put forward their "pride" of owning this industrial know-how, according to Fabrice Chirat, a trade union delegate CGT. Announcements could be made just after the end of the european elections. GE had bought out these activities energy Alstom in 2015, under the vigilance of the minister of Economy of the time, Emmanuel Macron.Date Of Update: 27 Mayıs 2019, 00:00
