the employees renew the strike at the Gonfreville refinery

Employees on strike at the TotalEnergies refinery in Gonfreville-l’Orcher (Seine-Maritime) voted Thursday, October 27 to continue their movement, which they want to make “more visible and more offensive”, announced the CGT. The strike is renewed at least until the next general meeting to be held on Wednesday November 2, said the CGT general secretary of the Normandy platform, Alexis Antonioli.

Last Thursday, the strike in Gonfreville was extended until October 27 to coincide with the publication of the group’s quarterly results. Thursday’s GA was therefore held a few hours after the publication by TotalEnergies of a sharp increase in profit in the third quarter.

Last two sites on strike

“When you have a group that is capable of aligning dividend envelopes of up to 2.6 billion, we think that they should be able to find solutions, even local ones, on a site like ours”assured Alexis Antonioli. “We are in a company that could choose, if it wishes, to have social peace”, believes the CGT delegate.

The Gonfreville refinery and the Feyzin depot (Rhône) are the last two sites to continue the movement started by the CGT on September 27, which has caused huge fuel supply difficulties throughout the country. At Thursday’s GA, around 90% of employees present voted for their movement to be “more visible and more offensive”. Several speakers, however, underlined a “shortness of breath” mobilization within the Normandy refinery.

$6.6 billion net profit

TotalEnergies announced Thursday a net profit of 6.6 billion dollars in the 3rd quarter, up 43% compared to that of the 3rd quarter of 2021. “I say so much the better. (…) When a French company succeeds, I think we should all be happy with that success and we should all be proud to have a great energy company that is French like Total”reacted in the wake of Bruno Le Maire on BFM Business.
