Two staff strikes will follow one another at Paris CDG and Paris Orly airports. The first strike will take place on the weekend of June 18-20 at the call of CFE-CGC and CGT, and the second strike will take place between July 1 and 5. These two periods of cessation of work take place after the call of all unions in France - CFE-CGC, CGT, UNSA SAPAP, CFDT and FO.

The unions intend to protest against the employment contract adjustment plan (PACT) that will reduce wages to deal with the consequences of the pandemic crisis. According to Augustin de Romanet, CEO of Aéroports de Paris (ADP), PACT intends to eliminate certain bonuses - by 2023 - and employees could have their salaries reduced by between 1 and 7%.

The unions, in turn, cite reductions in income of up to "one month's salary" and limited geographical mobility. If the strike is unsuccessful, employees risk being fired as part of a job protection plan (PSE) which is also being challenged by unions. In December, they signed a collective bargaining agreement (RCC) that led to 1.150 departures. Subsequently, more than half of these jobs were not replaced.

"It's about the staff responsible for passenger traffic, traffic or security, who have a lot to lose in this story.", said for AFP Rachid Eddaidj, the representative of the CFE-CGC union. "These are generally staff working part-time."he explains. "Therefore, they are obliged to come to work by car and would be severely affected by the cancellation of the benefits of transport."

Asked by Europe 1 whether these two strikes could cause disruption as the airline returns to France, Augustin de Romanet replied that he would "Make every effort to ensure that air traffic does not suffer."
