End of the strike in the EDF nuclear power plants, a salary agreement “signed unanimously”



The wage agreement at EDF which put an end to several weeks of strikes in the nuclear power stations was “signed unanimously” Thursday at the end of consultations within the four representative unions, management announced on Thursday 27 October.

“The agreement was signed unanimously by the four representative trade union organisations”, namely the CGT, FO, the CFDT and the CFE-CGC, indicated the management. “An unprecedented agreement has been signed by the CGT following a historic mobilization within the scope of EDF SA, which allows each employee to obtain a minimum increase of €200 per month”, declared Julien Lambert, federal secretary of the FNME-CGT.

Taking into account the branch agreement on increases in the electricity and gas industries (IEG) signed on October 17, employees will benefit in 2023 from a total revaluation of 4.6% (2.3% under the branch agreement and 2.3% under the EDF agreement).

Exceptional bonus

This measure will be supplemented by individual increases of an average of 2.45%, based on individual performance, together with an exceptional bonus of €2,600 gross.

The wage agreement concluded last Friday made it possible to loosen the grip on the social movement which had spread oil in the nuclear fleet for several weeks, and which still affected, just before the end of the negotiations, 12 out of 18 plants.

Declines in electricity production

The strike has caused cuts in electricity production and caused delays in the work schedule for the nuclear fleet, rekindling concerns about possible shortages this winter, in the midst of the European energy crisis.

The last central still on strike for wages at the start of the week, that of Dampierre (Loiret), lifted the movement on Wednesday, according to the CGT. “At the moment, the same (salary) negotiations are underway as at Enedis or GRDF, but the elements on the table are clearly not up to standard,” indicated Julien Lambert, of the FNME-CGT.

“While the agreement of the professional branch, signed by the CGT, has enabled progress, we are attentive and mobilized so that the necessary additions are achieved in all companies of the Electricity and Gas Industries (IEG)”, he added.
