Orange trade unions in France demand higher salaries in day of strike action

Wednesday 22 September 2021 | 09:39 CET | News
A group of six trade unions representing Orange France staff organised a 24-hour strike on 21 September to demand higher salaries. This follows the announcement by the telecom group to allocate pay rises across the workforce amounting to 1.8 percent of the overall annual wage budget. Unchanged from 2020, this settlement represents a fall from the 3.0 percent rate announced in 2019, when the agreement was comprehensively backed by trade union representatives.
