An hour later, a municipal council like no different started. Below the safety of 4 police automobiles, two dozen cops and Normal Intelligence …
Reasonably than receiving the workers who demonstrated, good kids, within the rain, for 3 hours, the right-hand metropolis council prefers to trigger heat infinite budgetary issues, whereas mounting the sound system to cowl the slogans, the “sufficient! "All underneath the safety of the police – a primary in Sèvres …
Positioned at level 17, that’s to say late within the night, a movement deliberate to debate an outrageous drawback. Mayor Grégoire de la Roncière (LREM … however shhh, he doesn't need it to be stated!) Found a number of weeks in the past that the personal firm accountable by its companies for taking good care of the upkeep of municipal buildings, employed undocumented migrants. CPN, Compagnie Parisienne de Nettoyage employs almost 100 and fifty individuals. Its greatest contract is with the town of Sèvres, for a contract of 1.2 million euros per 12 months. Contract that dates again greater than ten years. A peculiarity in Sèvres is that the CPN has a room, a closet, within the premises of the City Corridor the place the employees come to get their gear to work on the flooring or within the surrounding faculties. This doesn’t forestall the right-wing elected officers from " deplore the demonstrations held on its territory even when the headquarters of CPN is in Gennevilliers. So it’s the Metropolis Council that delegates, pays and cleans up what’s occurring by itself premises.
Representatives of EELV, the PS, the PC and LFI had met, in November, ten of those males of dignity which might return to many. Their testimonies opened onto a world of social brutality, lies and contempt.
The working circumstances communicate for themselves: working days from eight a.m. to five p.m., typically from 6 a.m. to five p.m., with half an hour for lunch, they obtain lower than € 1,000 per thirty days. It’s a administration by concern, which refuses them any medical appointment, any risk of taking a break day or trip, underneath penalty of dismissal. They arrive from Senegal, Mauritania or Mali. They’ve been in France for a 12 months and a half, three or 5 years.
Every French employer is required to make use of staff whose papers are so as. The NPC, like so many different organizations, circumvents the legislation through the use of nominees, in good standing. This formally makes it potential to pay the authorized contributions. And to make use of underpaid undocumented undocumented staff. Mortgage identification, false paperwork: the maneuver is well-known to tax companies resembling, now, the Metropolis Corridor.
After discovering the case on the time of the primary demonstration, on October 5, within the municipal bulletin of December, the bulk on the fitting wrote: " The controls that the Metropolis carried out, in accordance with the legislation, on the corporate didn’t reveal the presence of overseas staff with out legitimate residence allow. »A pleasant spin to clean your palms. As a result of residence permits have a really restricted length and a few of the staff are quickly underneath risk of expulsion. In reality, when the Severan staff requested for his or her regularization, supervised by SUD PTT and the CGT, they have been dismissed and due to this fact discovered themselves unemployed, with out sources. Below strain, the corporate CPN undertook to regularize its ex-employees individually and to reintegrate them " as quickly as they get papers »Can we make extra Tartuffe?
When the session was suspended, the Mayor underneath strain went down to talk with the demonstrators and eventually agreed to obtain them on December 27. Very late at night time, level 17 was amended and adopted: a number of phrases despatched to the Hauts-de-Seine Prefecture which don’t eat bread and decide to nothing. Within the LREM method.
Nonetheless, an answer exists, it’s easy: let the Metropolis instantly pay – and due to this fact legally – these staff who’ve been cleansing the home windows and the Mayor's workplace for years and that it denounces the miraculous contract with CPN for concealment and unlawful work. She would achieve financially – since this is likely one of the reflections of the present municipality. Above all, she would achieve humanely, the workers then with the ability to assert their official rights and procure greater than deserved papers.
However that doesn’t match into the classes, even much less within the priorities of the outgoing LREM-LR municipality!
The following day passed off the inauguration of the Church of Sèvres renovated at very nice value: the preliminary funds of two million euros exploded … Merry Christmas!
