At L’Horme, the company SAG France, which specializes in the manufacture of tanks for heavy cargo vehicles, It will lose its biggest customer, Renault Trucks. The contract is due to expire in September. This represents 80% of SAG France’s activity. Thierry Grand, of the CFTC, gets the impression he’s had. “We’ve always been told, ‘Gentlemen, don’t worry, we’re talking to Reno, the door isn’t locked. And to tell us now that Renault is over. Who cares about us! “the guild representative explodes.
According to the staff, nothing is being done to find a permanent solution. And the new president of SAG France, Patrick Beehler, appointed three weeks ago, is not reassured. “For me, the liquidator who is there, was dispatched by the parent company.”Advanced Doulache Boualem Delegate FO. “He wants to file for bankruptcy in September, that’s it. On the other hand, the guys will have to take until September. But they don’t want that anymore! They know they’re going to lose their jobs. They’re frustrated!”
We will pay for the broken utensils.
You see unions above all else as a maneuver by the parent company in Austria that claims to cut off very unprofitable branches. Boualem Kali, from CGT, thinks so An excuse to hide the group’s bad trading strategy. “Our parent company made the mistake of raising prices with Renault trucks, and Renault took it with caution and said, ‘SAG, we’re removing it from the list!'”The union says. “So we are not responsible. But on the other hand, we will pay for the broken pots.”
The only hope is to find new customers before September to fill out the order book. Until then, 84 employees say they are determined to continue the strike. In response to a question, the management of SAG France did not respond.
