Also internal demands

Around 9 a.m., around twenty strikers were present in front of the TelSet set, the company of production of Newen who takes care of DNA. "We are here following the surprise strike call from the Spiac-CGT launched Monday evening. We are demanding a 20% increase in everyone's salaries. It's been 20 years since we got a raise, and since then the cost of living has gone up and there is #39;inflation now", insists a striker.

To the question: "why the movement is less and less followed in France, but still so much to Tomorrow belongs to us", the elements of answer are numerous. "Since we are a daily, we are even more concerned and we are also stubborn&quot ;, estimates one of the strikers. "Filming has ended. We are still here and not all the sets are responding to the latest surprise calls from Spiac-CGT", continues our first source of the day.
